IDF: Gazans hurl explosives, firebombs, burn Israeli flags, try to damage fence


(Worthy News) - Palestinian protesters in Gaza on Friday hurled an explosive device and firebombs at Israeli troops deployed at the border, during what the Israel Defense Forces described as “several attempts” to damage the fence between Israel and the Gaza Strip and cross over into Israeli territory.

The Hamas-run health ministry said a 28-year old man had been shot and killed and more than 100 others injured by live fire.

Some 10,000-15,000 Palestinians were taking part in violent riots in five locations along the length of the border, the army said. In addition to trying to breach and cross the barrier, they carried out a number of attacks, including throwing Molotov cocktails and explosives at Israeli soldiers.
