Israeli Warplanes, Tanks Launch Strike on Gaza After Shots Fired at Border – IDF

As a result of the Israeli strikes two Palestinians died in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, according to the Gaza health ministry, as hundreds of people were protesting on the border.

The Israeli army’s aircraft and tanks hit a number of targets in the Gaza Strip on Friday in response to the shelling of its positions from the area during riots at the border, the IDF said.

The day before, Palestinian militants fired mortars at IDF soldiers near the Gaza Strip border.

Tensions on the Israeli border with Gaza had flared up due the Great March of Return rally, which began on March 30, in order to mark the 70th anniversary of the foundation of Israel and protest the moving of the US embassy to Jerusalem, which Palestinians consider to be their capital.
