Three Palestinian men approached the Gaza security fence and two of them threw a Molotov cocktail at an empty Israeli truck that was parked in the border region, setting it on fire, then ran back, according to Palestinian media reports and the Israeli military.

There are no reports of Israeli injuries in the incident.

According to the Israel Defense Forces, the suspects approached the border, entering a buffer zone controlled by Israel but without crossing the barrier into Israeli territory.

In the buffer zone, two of the suspects went up to an empty truck and set it on fire, the military says.
