IDF Foils Terrorist Infiltration at Gaza Border

PALESTINIAN-ISRAEL-CONFLICT-GAZA

Gaza: At least five Palestinians were killed and six wounded on Saturday evening in an explosion in a house in Gaza Strip, security officials and eyewitnesses said.

Palestinians protesting against the Israeli occupation in Gaza have shot down an Israeli drone amid intensifying clashes and rising number of casualties, Al-Masdar News reports.

May 6 Two Palestinians were killed after attempting to infiltrate Israel from the Gaza Strip today, the Israeli army and Palestinian medical sources said, the latest incident in escalating cross-border violence.

It was the first Friday protest in which no fatalities or fatal injuries were recorded since the protests began six weeks ago.

An Israeli military spokesperson denied that the Israeli military was involved. Israel accuses Hamas, which is sworn to Israel's destruction, of trying to carry out attacks under the guise of the mass protests.

Three other men were wounded from the blast, their conditions were not reported.

Abu Asser's death brought the death toll among Palestinian protesters to 45 people since the anti-Israel rallies started on March 30.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said she had no information about the incident.

Meanwhile, the Israeli media quoted an Israeli army spokesman as saying that the Israeli army is not behind the incident in the Gaza Strip.

The Palestinian rally, known as the "Great March of Return", will last until May 15, which coincides with the 70th anniversary of Nakba Day (Day of Catastrophe), when Israel was created. The IDF also believes that the number of dead and injured is being exaggerated by the Palestinian side.

The weekly marches also press for a "right of return" of Palestinian refugees and their descendants to what is now Israel.
