From early Friday, Muslim terrorists have been rioting in multiple locations along the security border fence between Israel and Gaza. Hamas-sponsored terrorists are burning tires, throwing rocks, flying firebombs attached to kites and attempting to damage the fence in order to infiltrate into Israel and kill Jews.
Several attempts to harm or breach the security infrastructure took place.
In addition, a number of attempted terror attacks occurred, during which an explosive device and firebombs were hurled at security forces.
According to Arab reports, a 25-year-old terrorist was said to have been shot in the head east of Jabalia and died of his wounds after being rushed to hospital in Gaza.
Another terrorist was reportedly shot and eliminated after throwing an explosive device at IDF troops. No injuries reported.
IDF soldiers deployed along the border in a bid to prevent or react to the outbreak of violence, with officials warning that the military will act against instigators and riot ringleaders.
Ahead of the violent riots, the IDF dropped leaflets on Gaza on Friday morning, warning residents to refrain from approaching the border fence with Israel, and not to attempt to damage it or carry out terror attacks.
“You are participating in violent disturbances. Hamas is using you to carry out terror attacks. The IDF is ready for any scenario,” the leaflets read, which also contained pictures of objects and weapons and actions which the military has forbidden in the riots.
“Avoid approaching the fence and damaging it. Avoid using a weapon to carry out violent acts against the Israeli security forces and Israeli civilians. Keep away from terrorists and from people who promote disturbances and violence,” the leaflets instructed before warning that the army would not hesitate to respond.
The violence broke out on Friday after 45,000 Muslim terrorists rioted near the fence, threw rocks and firebombs, burned tires and attempted to infiltrate into Israel.
The Hamas-sponsored riots are due to end on May 15, the day Arabs call the “Nakba” or “Catastrophe”, marking the creation of the State of Israel in 1948.
