Number of Palestinians Injured in Clashes in Gaza Grows to Almost 400
On September 17, the press service of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said that the army had carried out an airstrike in the south of Gaza, targeting people whom they had qualified as terrorists, as they had approached the border fence and had left a suspicious object there.

The recent violence on the Israeli-Gaza border has been created by continuous shelling and the release of torching balloons reportedly by Hamas militants into Israel.

The long-existing tensions in the Gaza Strip have escalated since late March when Palestinians launched weekly protest rallies at the border.
