Muslim terrorists riot along the Gaza border – Hamas terror activity escalates
Some 450 Muslim terrorists are rioting along the Gaza border on Saturday night in at least four locations.
Gaza terrorists are burning tires, throwing rocks, grenades, launching firebombs, explosive devices and attempting to infiltrate into Israel in order to murder Jews.
At least three hand grenades and two explosive devices were thrown at IDF troops.
The IDF is using crowd dispersal methods, including live fire at main terrorists.
Israeli media reported on Saturday that Hamas terror group threatens to escalate the border riots if Israel “does not end the blockade this week”.
The legal blockade of Gaza meant to prevent weapons from being transferred into the hands of terrorists, including the ruling Hamas terror group.
On Thursday, Egypt closed Rafah crossing with Gaza in response to Hamas’ refusal to attend reconciliation talks.
Earlier today, the IDF neutralized multiple bombs planted by Muslim terrorists during Friday’s riots near the security border fence.
Arabs reported IDF strikes on Hamas terror positions in northern Gaza as thousands of Jihad sympathizers attended military funeral parades of three Muslim terrorists, including an 11-year-old child-terrorist, who were allegedly shot and eliminated during Friday’s riots.
There are conflicting reports surrounding the death of the 11-year-old terrorist, which Arabs initially blamed on Israel.
The IDF said their evidence shows that he was hit by a rock thrown by fellow terrorists and Gaza activists claimed he died after being struck “with a solid object”.
Hamas-run Gaza Health Ministry said he was killed by Israeli fire east of Jabalia. A spokesman said Saturday he died from ‘head wounds’, without elaborating.
Hamas terror activity along the border seems to be escalating quickly. On Friday, an IDF officer was lightly wounded by shrapnel from a bomb thrown by Muslim terrorists at troops securing the border. IDF tanks and drones attacked two Hamas terror positions in response.
