IDF estimates 10,000 Gaza rioters. Palestinians: 300 injured – most by tear gas

The IDF reported that around 10,000 Palestinians staged violent demonstrations Friday at four points of the Gaza-Israeli border fence, pushing hard to breach the barrier. Israeli soldiers repulsed them with crowd dispersal measures and gunfire. The Palestinians claimed 300 injured. In one instance, an explosive device blew up in the hands of rioters when it was struck by a bullet. Other devices were lobbed across at the soldiers. Sniper fire was subject to permission from an officer with the rank of battalion commander. Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman noted: “The number of Palestinian rioters in Gaza declines from week to week. I thank the soldiers and commanders for their professional and highly moral effort to safeguard the border and allow us carry on as normal, notwithstanding the small and hypocritical minority protesting against them.”

    There are no churches and no synagogues in the land called Gaza offered by the Israel to the Arabs as a gift.
    This is why God does not give a shit, not even a small shitty shit, on the Arab fate.

    Why has Debka not posted the picture or video of the Palestinian flag with swastika flying last week in the gaza “peaceful” protest?

    Go back to your homes, Terrorstinians, and attack the people who sent you on this latest terror mission. You have been betrayed and you are deluded and evil if you think that the hatred you have learned from birth contains any answers.
