In addition, the military wing of Hamas published footage today of terrorists from the Tulkarm camp firing towards the town . No injuries were reported.

The Emek Hefer Regional Council reported that it "sees the crossing of illegal aliens very severely, demands that the army adopt zero tolerance towards this phenomenon, and prevent any element from reaching the proximity of the wall. The council continues to demand the addition of security forces in the area, as well as the creation of a buffer zone beyond the wall to prevent anyone approaching the border.''
