The IDF Spokesperson's Office released two video clips from the violent confrontations on the Gaza border Monday. Over 40,000 people participated in the riots at 13 locations along the Gaza border.

One of the clips shows members of an armed squad attempting to break through the perimeter fence. An IDF vehicle arrives at the scene and fires at the terrorists, some of whom escape.

In another video, demonstrators can be seen attempting to damage the fence by pulling parts of the fence down and by burning tires.

At the same time, the army published pictures of terrorists placing an improvised explosive device (IED) near the fence, as well as demonstrators burning tires and a kite with a firebomb that was sent from one of the demonstrations.

Another video documented the attack on Hamas' position by the Israeli Air Force. The IDF Spokesperson's Office said that a fighter plane attacked five terrorist targets in a Hamas training camp in the northern Gaza Strip, in response to the terrorist activity carried out by the Hamas terrorist organization in the past few hours along the border fence.

In addition, it was reported that earlier, the IDF attacked two additional terrorist positions belonging to Hamas in the northern Gaza Strip, in response to fire on IDF forces earlier today.

The Gazan Ministry of Health reported 41 deaths and 1,700 injuries, including several dozen who were critically wounded, during the riots. An IDF soldier was slightly injured by a stone thrower and was evacuated to the Barzilai Hospital in Ashkelon.
