Hundreds of Gazan Arabs gathered Sunday night along the separation fence with Israel, setting tires on fire and throwing explosives.

It was the second consecutive nighttime border riot and took place hours after Israeli warplanes carried out a series of airstrikes on alleged Hamas targets in response to the unrest. Hamas officials have vowed to hold nightly riots until at least Thursday.

“The Zionist occupation bears all the repercussions and consequences of the tightening of the siege on Gaza and the escalation of the humanitarian crisis among its residents,” said Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum. “No calm or stability will be achieved as long as our people lack a free and dignified life.”

The IDF said that Arabs set tires on fire and lobbed explosives toward Israeli troops, and that its forces took measures to disperse the crowd. The Palestinian Health Ministry said one protester was shot and suffered moderate wounds.

  1. As long as these subhuman primates want to protest, scream, and chant, leave them alone. The moment they take to violence that affects israel, it should be met with gigantic and powerful lethal force. There is no discussion with animals, and diplomacy has no place here.

  2. Stop the trucks from Israel supplying food and supplies to Gaza until the riots stop and the Israeli prisoners and bodies are returned!!!! The continued weakness of the Israeli government just encourages the Arab escalation and we don’t need any more sacrifices of our Jewish sons like Barel Shumeli!
