Gazans hold fresh protests on border

Palestinians in the Gaza Strip are once again rioting on the border with Israel.

Footage shows a number of suspects crossing into the buffer zone — between Israel’s old border fence and a new security barrier — and placing Palestinian flags in the area.

Palestinians have repeatedly rioted on the border in recent days, and have set off explosive devices on the fence.

In response, Israel has shuttered the Erez border crossing, preventing 17,000 Gazan laborers from entering Israel for work.
