Throughout the day, dozens of Palestinians participated in violent riots in 4 main locations along the Gaza border. IDF troops used riot dispersal means, and fired towards suspects who were involved in damaging the security fence 

The IDF will not allow any breach of the security fence, which protects Israeli civilians, and will continue to operate in order to prevent terrorists who are involved in these acts of terror. The IDF wishes to emphasize that approaching the security fence is a dangerous act
