Several fires broke out on Friday surrounding the Gaza Strip as a result of incendiary balloons, while clashes erupted between the IDF and thousands of Palestinian rioters along the border.

Forty-six Palestinians, including a paramedic who was injured in the leg from a tear gas canister, were injured in the clashes, according to Palestinian reports. Some reports also claimed that the fence was breached by rioters in the eastern Gaza Strip.

Earlier on Friday, Israeli warplanes and aircrafts attacked several terror targets in Gaza in response to a rocket fired on Thursday that directly hit a yeshiva in Sderot.


“The IDF will continue to act against attempts to harm the citizens of Israel and sees Hamas as responsible for everything occurring in and out of the Gaza Strip,” the IDF said in a statement.
