The severe terror on the border of the Gaza Strip continues. Gazan terrorists have thrown over 300 improvised explosive devices and grenades over the past hour alone. The IDF has injured a number of terrorists on the border with one reported dead.
Thousands of Gazans have been protesting along the security fence on a weekly basis taking part in Great March of Return demonstrations which began on March 30 2018.
The IDF has reported that it has faced around 9,500 demonstrators, some hurling rocks and rolling burning tires. A spokeswoman said troops had responded with “riot dispersal means” and fired according to standard operating procedures.
The Eshkol Regional Council, on the Gaza border, sought to calm the residents who complained of hearing many explosions: “The explosions are heard in several places along the border. The IDF is in all areas of events. “
United Nations Atrocity
Just this week the United Nations Human Rights Council voted to adopt a report accusing Israel of War Crimes committed against Gaza civilians during Gaza demonstrations, ignoring the fact that they are organized terror attacks by Hamas.
The UN report was adopted with 23 votes in favor, 8 against and 15 abstentions. Even though the UK foreign Secretary, Jeremy Hunt previously announced that the UK would oppose all motions criticising rights abuses in the West Bank and Gaza that are brought to the UN’s human rights council under a special procedure dedicated to Israel’s behaviour in the occupied territories, the UK ended up abstaining from voting against the adoption of the anti-Israel report.
Continued Hamas Violence on Gaza Border
It is an absolute disgrace that the United Nations sides with Hamas and ignores the weekly, and sometimes even daily, terror against Israel on the Gaza border over the past year.
Tonight is being reported by the IDF as one of the more violent nights since they started the night attacks at the border.

All this while nearly two million Gazans have been rising up against their totalitarian leaders from the Hamas terrorist organization. This is not yet a full-fledged revolution or anything close, but it is the beginning of something that needs to be properly evaluated by Israel and the entire world.
