“IMAGINE: A mob of 20K people, throwing bombs & grenades, attempting to reach your home. The people of southern Israel don’t have to imagine; this is happening right now,” the IDF said.
Over 20,000 Palestinians gathered at five locations along Gaza’s border with Israel Friday in response to calls by Hamas, the terrorist group that rules the Strip.
“IMAGINE: A mob of 20K people, throwing bombs & grenades, attempting to reach your home. The people of southern Israel don’t have to imagine; this is happening right now on Israel’s border fence with Gaza. Our troops are there to do what is necessary to protect Israeli civilians,” the IDF tweeted on Friday.
IDF soldiers responded with tear gas and gunfire, resulting in at least seven deaths and 90 wounded. Two of the dead were children, aged 12 and 14, the Gaza Health Ministry said.
The next day, the IDF said it neutralized over 100 bombs and grenades thrown at them during the rioting and posted photos of explosive material that it found in Israeli territory.
