IDF: 5,000 Gazans burn tires, throw rocks at troops along border

The army says 5,000 Palestinians are taking part in this week’s clashes along the Gaza border, burning tires, throwing rocks at Israeli troops and flying burning kites towards Israel.

The Israel Defense Forces say soldiers are working to disperse the violent protests taking place at five different spots along the border and are using live fire in accordance with regulations.

“The IDF will not allow damage to security infrastructure or the fence and will continue to fulfill its mission of protecting the security of Israeli citizens and [Israel’s] sovereignty as necessary,” it says.

The Hamas-run health ministry in Gaza says one Palestinian has been killed and 167 have been injured in today’s “March of Return” clashes.
