Palestinians head to the Gaza border for a third straight night of riots, as military chief Aviv Kohavi warns that Israel will respond to any violence.

“Calm and security will allow an improvement in civil conditions, but rioting and terror will lead to strong response or operation,” IDF Aviv Kohavi warns in a speech. “If quiet isn’t preserved in the south, we won’t hesitate to set out on another campaign.”
