The IDF carried out airstrikes within the Gaza Strip on Saturday night after a Border Police officer was critically injured during the riots along the border fence.
Dozens of Palestinians were injured in the riots, as well.
Fighter planes targeted four different sites throughout Gaza which were manufacturing and storing weapons, the IDF announced shortly after the attacks.

Machine gun fire on Sderot houses was reported after midnight, causing damage. A 16-year-old Israeli civilian was lightly wounded while running to a bomb shelter, Kan reported.Two companies from the IDF’s officer training base and three teams from the Maglan commando unit have been sent to the Gaza Division, according to Army Radio.

The IDF also reinforced its Iron Dome missile-defense unit, according to Israeli media.”The attacks were carried out due to the riots on the border fence, as well as the shooting of the Border Policeman,” the IDF said. “Hamas continues to make Gaza a terror state while exploiting the civilian population. The IDF will continue to respond with force to any terror attempts made by Hamas, and we view Hamas as being responsible for anything that happens in the Gaza Strip,” it said.On Thursday, Hamas and other Palestinian factions urged Palestinians to mark the anniversary of the burning of the pulpit of al-Aqsa by heading there to “defend” it against Israeli “attacks.”

This is a developing story.
