Around 7,000 Palestinians rioted on the Israel-Gaza Strip border on Friday, violently confronting IDF troops, despite reports that a truce was being implemented.

According to health officials in Hamas-ruled Gaza, around 50 Palestinians were hurt in Friday’s unrest.

No Israeli casualties were reported.

In southern Gaza, a firebomb was thrown toward an IDF jeep that was being driven along the border.
