The incendiary device was attached to balloons but did not cause any damage.

On Friday, some 8,000 protesters resumed the weekly demonstrations, or “March of Return,” against Israel along the border fence along the Gaza Strip, throwing grenades and improvised explosive devices towards Israeli troops.

Some protesters also tried to cross into Israel. According to Palestinian officials, 11 protesters sustained moderate wounds.
