The Israeli Air Force attacked a number of targets in the Gaza Strip late Saturday evening, according to the IDF spokesperson's unit. In an additional report, the IDF revealed that the targeted position was the Izzadin Kassam Brigades' Ein Jalut base in the southern Gaza Strip.
Earlier Saturday, Hamas terrorists briefly breached the Israeli border and set off a Molotov cocktail. In response, IDF soldiers opened fire and the terrorists fled back to Gaza.
A total of 5,000 Palestinians participated in Saturday's violence in which the rioters hurled pipe bombs at IDF soldiers in an attempt to breach and sabotage the security infrastructure. The IDF responded by dispersing the demonstrators, using crowd dispersal tactics and shooting in compliance with the IDF's open-fire regulations.
