Gaza border fence

IDF troops on Wednesday evening arrested two Palestinians Arabs who crossed the security fence in southern Gaza into Israeli territory.

The two suspects were taken for questioning by security forces. They appeared to be unarmed.

Gazans have constantly been provoking IDF soldiers stationed near the border fence in recent years.

These provocations normally take place on Fridays, when Arabs riot near the border fence and attack security forces with rocks.

The soldiers ask the rioters to move back but they ignore the calls and continue to approach the fence, forcing troops to open fire.
