Four days after a mass Palestinian demonstration near the Gaza Strip border, the IDF said on Tuesday it had found a backpack containing Molotov cocktails, which were meant to be used by protesters against Israeli forces.

A backpack containing Molotov cocktails has been found near the Gaza Strip border, the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said Tuesday.
According to the army, the backpack was left there during Friday’s Palestinian demonstration led by Hamas, which proves that the event was “a cover-up” and that it helped terrorists “attempt to carry out attacks against the IDF and the citizens of Israel.”
On Monday, it was reported on Israeli media that the organizers of Friday’s demonstration had set up a committee of international law experts with the intent to sue IDF soldiers and officers for war crimes in The Hague.
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.
