With Friday only a day away, the IDF is preparing for more tension along the security fence. Gazans have amassed nearly 10,000 tires with the intention of burning them during a second mass protest along the Gaza security fence. Women and children were instructed to carry mirrors and lasers to distract IDF snipers at the fence. Their goal is to create a “wall of smoke” along the border ultimately obscuring vision of Israeli soldiers.
Both Israel and Palestinian groups have warned against the move, which could see both sides suffering an ecological disaster.
