15-year-old Muslim terrorist shot and eliminated during Friday riots along the security border fence
A 15-year-old Muslim terrorist was shot and eliminated east of Gaza City during violent riots on the border on Friday, health officials in Gaza said.
As every Friday after mosque, Muslim terrorists are rioting, burning tires, throwing rocks, launching firebomb-kites and balloons and attempting to infiltrate into Israel in order to murder Jews.
An IDF officer was moderately injured by a grenade that Muslim terrorists from Gaza threw at him during the violent riots.
Troops responded by firing towards the terrorists. A hit was identified. The officer was evacuated to Soroka Medical Center in Beer Sheva.
Last week, Israel closed the Kerem Shalom commercial border crossing with Gaza in light of the ongoing arson and additional terror attacks carried out by Hamas terrorists.
This includes infiltration into Israel from Gaza, terror tunnels discovered leading into Israel from Gaza, including two near the Kerem Shalom Crossing, and violent riots along the security border. In addition to putting the lives of Israeli civilians at risk and breaching Israel’s sovereignty, Hamas also simultaneously exploits and endangers Gaza residents.
To date Hamas has burned more than 7,400 acres of land and set more than 750 fires, an average of more than 11 fires a day, using arson kites and incendiary balloons. Israeli firefighters have been working hard to extinguish the fires, but Hamas has been igniting them at a rapid pace.
