The IDF struck a Hamas terrorist outpost as Palestinians were rioting across Israel’s border with the Gaza Strip, the military announced Friday evening.
During Palestinian riots, Israeli security forces were attacked with smoke grenades and explosive devices, to which IDF soldiers responded with riot dispersal measures.
Israeli forces conducted the strike with a drone, foreign reports stated, as the IDF said it was carried out with an undisclosed ‘aircraft’.
At least 12 Gazans injured, Palestinian reports say
No injuries or casualties were reported among Israeli forces. Palestinian media reported that at least 12 Gazan rioters were injured during the riots.
The riots and IDF’s subsequent strike on the Hamas terrorist organization came as Israelis celebrated the new Jewish New Year of 5784 on Friday evening.
It also comes after a host of other riots held on the Gaza border, where a handful of Palestinians were killed in clashes with the IDF on Wednesday.
On Tuesday, three Palestinians were arrested in similar riots, conducted as part of protests against restrictions National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir intends to implement against Palestinian prisoners.
