Hundreds of Palestinians said to riot at Gaza border

Hundreds of Palestinians mass at the Israel-Gaza border, setting off explosives and burning tires near the security fence.

The IDF uses riot dispersal methods to break up the protesters, Army Radio reports.

Channel 12 says rioters hurl explosive charges at Israeli troops, and one Palestinian is injured.

Recent weeks have seen an uptick in violence in Gaza, with waves of arson balloons igniting dozens of fires in southern Israel, including at least 19 on Saturday.

Israel has bombed Hamas terror targets for the last four nights, limited imports into the Strip, and reduced its fishing zone in retaliation to the attacks.
