Gaza rioters during clashes with Israeli forces following a swarm at the Israel-Gaza border, in Khan Younis in southern Gaza, on April 2, 2018.

Three Gazans were arrested Monday afternoon after infiltrating into Israeli territory through the security fence along the border, using renewed rioting at the site as a cover for the move.

The three were spotted by IDF soldiers and detained on the Israeli side of the border. Dozens of Arabs were rioting at the time at the security fence along the border with northern Gaza. Renewed rioting has broken out sporadically a number of times since the massive swarm that took place on Friday. The Israel Defense Forces used standard riot control methods to disperse the mob.

Earlier in the day, one of the injured from the clashes on Friday near Khan Younis – a member of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist group, according to PIJ – died of his wounds.

At least eight of the 10 confirmed terrorists who were killed on Friday were members of Gaza’s ruling Hamas terrorist organization. One was a PIJ member; the other was a member of the Fatah-linked Al Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades. The status of the other six dead has not yet been confirmed.
