Clashes also erupted between masked youths and security forces on the northern and southern portions of the Gaza strip, adjacent to the border fence. In the northern portion of the strip, dozens of youths threw rocks at the Erez crossing, while youths threw stones and lit tires on fire on the portion of the border fence that sits adjacent to Khan Younis.
