The Hamas-run health ministry in the Gaza Strip reports two wounded by Israeli fire amid the latest rioting on the border with Israel.

The Israel Defense Forces has been responding to the near-daily riots with crowd dispersal means and live fire in some cases.

Palestinians have been detonating explosive devices and setting tires on fire along the border for four days in a row. There have been several more riots in recent weeks.

The Erez Crossing with Gaza has also remained shut in response to the recent violence, and is not expected to reopen unless Hamas works to end the riots, according to Israeli officials.
