IDF declares Nahal Oz area near Gaza a closed military zone

The area around Kibbutz Nahal Oz is now a closed military zone after protesters from Gaza breached the border fence in the area, the IDF says.

The IDF is using riot dispersal means — tear gas and rubber bullets — against the bulk of the demonstrators, but is shooting at the “central instigators,” a spokeswoman says.

The army “is aware” of the reports of injured Palestinian, she adds.
