IDF hits Hamas post close to Gaza riots near Israel border

The military says it has hit a post in the Gaza Strip belonging to the Hamas terror group, near the place where dozens have been rioting along the border with Israel.

In the latest violent rally near the barrier in what has become a daily occurrence, rioters have burned tires and at least in one case hurled a makeshift bomb toward Israeli forces. Footage showed balloons carrying incendiary devices being flown toward the border.

The IDF says in its statement that the gunfire toward Israeli troops near the border originated from the Hamas post that was hit.

Military sources say troops have responded to the clashes with riot dispersal measures and live fire in some instances, adding that none of the incendiary balloons have crossed into Israeli territory.
