“Over the last few hours, hundreds of rioters participated in a violent riot adjacent to the security fence in the northern Gaza Strip,” the Israel Defense Forces says in a statement.
The IDF says during the rioting, suspects hurled explosive devices and grenades at the barrier, leading troops to respond with riot dispersal measures.
According to the IDF, Palestinians attempted to detonate a makeshift bomb against troops along the border fence, but the device exploded prematurely in the Gaza Strip, leading to casualties.
The Hamas-run health ministry says four people were killed and several others were wounded.
