Hundreds of Palestinians are taking part in demonstrations along the Gaza border over the ongoing unrest in Jerusalem and the rising tensions between Israel and terror groups in the Strip.

According to Palestinian media, the IDF has fired a number of flares into the air around the protest sites, notably near the shuttered Karni border crossing, where some 700 people were taking part in the demonstration. The IDF has also reportedly fired stun grenades to keep people away from the security fence.
