Iranian-backed, Hamas-led Gaza rioters flew the Nazi swastika fastened on to the Palestinian Authority flag this past Friday as they gathered at the security fence along the border with southern Israel.
“The Nazi swastika flag, a symbol of murder and sheer hatred raised yet again at a Hamas riot inside Gaza,” the IDF wrote in a post describing the incident on the Twitter social networking site. “In the face of this hatred stand IDF soldiers, alert and determined, ready to defend lsrael.”
Some 6,000 Gazans were involved in this Friday’s weekly violence at the border with southern Israel. As usual, the rioters burned tires and hurled rocks and homemade explosives at IDF soldiers stationed along the security fence.
In what is a fine example of true “fake news,” Israel’s Kan public broadcast authority reported that some of the rioters managed to “break through” the checkpoints anyway, despite the so-called “checkpoints” set up by Gaza’s ruling Hamas terror organization.
Those “rushes towards the border” by Gazan rioters are, in fact, entirely organized and led by Hamas operatives.
No Israeli soldiers were physically injured in the violence. According to the Hamas-run Gaza Health Ministry, 51 rioters were injured on Friday, including 24 who were hurt due to gunfire. It is not possible to independently verify the data, however.
