A few dozen Palestinian vessels attempted to exit Gaza and moved in the direction of Israeli waters, according to the IDF Spokesperson's Unit.

The IDF responded by firing warning shots into the air and fired into the vicinity of the boats resulting in no casualties, according to the IDF Spokesperson's Unit.

The attempt of the vessels to leave Gaza occurred at the same time as thousands of Palestinian rioters burned tires and threw stones in protest at the border fence.

Palestinian rioters threw an explosive charge at IDF soldiers on the border fence resulting in no casualties.

In an attempt to disperse the protestors, IDF soldiers used dispersal tactics and fired in accordance with the rules and regulations of the IDF, according to the IDF Spokesperson's Unit.
