A mob of approximately 20,000 Gazans on Friday afternoon burned tires, threw bombs and grenades, and attempted to break through the border fence with Israel.
The IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said that 10 armed terrorists were able to break through the fence and were stopped by IDF forces.
In response, an IDF aircraft carried out two strikes in Gaza.
The Hamas-run “health ministry” in Gaza claimed that two Gazan Arabs, including a 14-year-old boy, were killed by Israeli fire in the clashes along the border.
A further 142 people were wounded including five in a critical condition, a spokesman for the bureau told AFP.
Senior Hamas official Mahmoud al-Zahar declared on Sunday that the border riots along the Gaza border will continue until they achieve their goals.
