Gaza demonstrators burn tires near the border with Israel, April 6, 2018.

Four truckloads of car tires that were scheduled to enter Gaza via the Kerem Shalom Crossing Sunday morning, were prevented by the Israeli authorities from entering after the tire burning riots last Friday, Gazan reporter Tamer El Sultan tweeted.

Gaza Arabs nicknamed Friday’s events “Jum’at al-Kawshook” – “Tires Friday,” as protesters set fire to thousands of tires along the border with Israel, creating huge clouds of black smoke intended to confuse Israeli snipers and prevent them from targeting individuals who attempted to scale the fence.

Incidentally, Black Friday Tires was an event that was held by Goodyear Tires last November with no relation to the Middle East conflicts.
