3 Palestinians detained by IDF after trying to cross Gaza border fence

Just days after violent clashes between the IDF and Palestinian protesters near the Gaza Strip border fence, the IDF on Sunday evening detained three Palestinians who tried to cross into Israel.

Three unarmed Palestinians were detained on Sunday evening by IDF forces after trying to cross the border fence in the southern Gaza Strip.

Earlier on Sunday, the IDF beefed up security near the Gaza Strip border fence, just days after 17 Palestinian protesters were killed in violent clashes with Israeli forces that erupted during Friday's Hamas-led "March of Return."

According to reports on Israeli media, barbed-wire fences have been added all along the border in preparation for the upcoming demonstrations.

Meanwhile, Palestinian officials have instructed protesters to bring mirrors to future demonstrations with which to blind the Israeli snipers, as well as buckets with which to cover tear gas grenades thrown by the IDF.
