Thousands of Palestinians gathered by the Gaza border fence Monday morning and clashed with IDF forces deployed in the area ahead of the US Embassy opening ceremony in Jerusalem and the Nakba Day events.
The protestors burned tires and threw stones at the soldiers, trying to approach the fence. An IDF quadcopter was shot down near Jabalia. The IDF fired gas grenades and warning shots at the protestors in response.
Most protestors gathered in the northern area, near the Saja’iyya neighborhood, facing Kibbutz Nahal Oz.
