IDF declares area around Israeli side of Gaza fence a closed military zone

The army declares the area around the Israeli side of the Gaza border to be a closed military zone, forbidding civilians from getting close without army permission.

The order comes as Israeli security forces prepare for mass protests along the Gaza security fence, during which Israeli defense officials fear that Palestinians might try to break through the barrier and enter Israeli territory.
