At least 13,000 Palestinians rioted along the border between Israel and Gaza on Friday in the latest escalation in tensions in the region.
According to the Israel Defense Forces, the Palestinian rioters were seen throwing rocks, firebombs and hand grenades at IDF soldiers, while also burning tires and trying to breach the border fence.
As a result of the riots, the IDF said that it had hit a Hamas post in the northern Gaza Strip.
“IDF troops monitored the suspects in each incident and all the suspects returned to the Gaza Strip soon after crossing,” the IDF said. “In response to the violent events along the security fence, an IDF aircraft targeted a Hamas military post.”
