A video taken over the last weekend offers a glimpse into the recent wave of Palestinian riots near the Gaza border fence, which have, in many cases, triggered violent clashes with IDF soldiers and caused casualties on both sides.
In the video, two Palestinians are shown trying to instigate a confrontation with an IDF soldier on the other side of the fence. “Come down here if you’re a real man,” they shout at him. “Are you afraid? Let’s see you face me one on one.”
On Friday, clashes erupted between Palestinian rioters and IDF soldiers near Khan Yunis and in the northern Gaza Strip. Three rioters were reported injured from IDF sniper fire.
In a photo taken by a Palestinian photographer during the riots, a Palestinian flag is shown waving on the border fence. Last week, four IDF soldiers were injured, one of them seriously, when a bomb detonated near the fence while the soldiers were trying to remove a similar flag that had been placed on it.
