IDF Soldier Lightly Wounded in Continued Gaza Border Unrest
Around 6,000 Palestinians rioted on the Israel-Gaza Strip border on Friday, throwing rocks, firebombs and explosive devices at IDF troops.
The soldiers responded with riot-dispersal means. One soldier was lightly wounded in the unrest, and an IDF military vehicle was damaged.
According to medical officials in Hamas-ruled Gaza, 75 Palestinians were injured on the border on Friday.
Also on Friday, the IDF detained four Palestinians who had crossed the border from Gaza armed with a grenade and a knife.
Border violence has been a near-weekly occurrence since the Hamas-orchestrated “Great March of Return” demonstrations began in March 2018.
