Violent clashes occurred earlier today along Israel’s border with the Gaza strip when Hamas government incited civilians to storm the fence, a call that was heeded by as many as 13 thousand Gazans. Rioters burned tires and pelted Israeli troops deployed along the internationally recognized border with homemade explosives and Molotov cocktails. In response to the violence an IDF aircraft attacked two Hamas outposts. At three seprate points along the border fence there were brief incursions by Gazan residents into Israeli territory. According to the Hamas ministry of health, one woman, 43 year old Amal Mustafa Ahmad A-Thrasi was killed and 25 others were wounded. An IDF soldier was lightly injured by rocks thrown at him by Arab rioters and was evacuated for treatment. IDF spokesperson released a statement saying that Israeli forces were responding to the violent rioting with “non-lethal means of crowd control as well as live fire in accordance with standing orders”.
