The IDF said in response that dozens of Palestinians illegally gathered next to the Gaza border, noting that some rioted and tried to

breach the fence. The troops attempted to disperse the crowd, hurting one Palestinian in the process, the army said.


Several incidents that saw IDF troops firing at Palestinians at the border have been reported since the brief war between Israel and Hamas in November. The army explained in the past that the Palestinians often enter the closed buffer zone near the border and try to damage the fence.


A Palestinian was hurt by IDF gunfire near Beit Lahia, also in Gaza's north, in a similar incident last Friday.
