IDF Kills Group of Palestinian Terrorists Who Launched Gaza Border Attack

On Friday, the IDF announced it has made a number of new arrests in the massive manhunt for the Palestinian assailant who shot and killed two of his Israeli coworkers at a factory in Barkan last Sunday.

On Monday night roughly 7,000 Palestinian Arabs provoked Israeli troops by attacking them with burning tires, rocks and firebombs while dozens of boats tried to break through Israel's naval blockade, Arutz 7 reported.

A middle-aged Palestinian woman has been stoned to death by Israeli settlers in the northern part of the occupied West Bank, reports say.

The order was issued by Israeli minister of military affairs Avigdor Lieberman.

The announcement came after six Palestinians were reportedly killed in clashes with Israeli security forces along the Gaza border Friday afternoon, according to the Hamas-run health ministry.

Mladenov, alongside Egypt, has been seeking a long-term truce agreement between Hamas and the Jewish state, without including Abbas's internationally recognized government in the indirect negotiations.

According to the Health Ministry, more than 200 Palestinians have been killed - and thousands more injured - since the rallies began on March 30.

The majority were killed during border demonstrations, though others have died in airstrikes and tank shelling.

In the meantime, the IDF stated that a group of terrorists had attacked an Israeli outpost on the border.

He said around five members of the group then launched an organised attack against a military post inside Israel and all of them were killed by Israeli troops. They also seek the right to return to lands that Palestinians were forced to leave in 1948.

They are also calling for Israel to end its crippling blockade of the strip.

The main border crossing to deliver fuel to Gaza had been closed by Israel for weeks on two separate occasions in July and August.

There had been hopes the protests would ease after the UN-brokered agreement to ease the strip's energy crisis took effect this week.

On Friday, thousands of Gazans staged demonstrations on the border with Israel.

Hamas' chief, Ismail Haniyeh, who attended a protest in east Gaza City, said that "the determination of the Palestinian people will break the siege".
