IDF: Over the past few hours a violent riot took place adjacent to the security fence in the central Gaza Strip. Palestinians hurled rocks and rolled burning tires, making several attempts to breach the security fence. Tens of suspects breached the fence; five were caught by IDF forces and taken for questioning. The rest retreated back into Gaza. Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, IDF Spokesman: “The reality Israel faces on the border with Gaza is one of a hostile and violent entity. That entity has attacked Israel with snipers, explosive devices, tunnels and others. For this reason the IDF operates to protect the residents of Israel. Unfortunately, due to acts like this and past terror activities along the border, the IDF must consider any breach of the buffer zone with Gaza to be a potential threat both to civilians and security forces”.
