Clashes at the Gaza border which have been repeatedly taking place since late March, intensify during every Friday.

Some 10,000 Palestinians are taking part in clashes with the Israeli military on the border with the Gaza Strip, the press service of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) estimates.

“About 10,000 people are involved in violent riots on the border with the Gaza Strip… the throwing of grenades, attempts to cross the border or carry out terrorist actions are common. The Army has taken measures to suppress these attempts,” the IDF press service said.
