No further details are known at this time.

Meanwhile, Palestinian Arab media reported on Friday night that the IDF attacked in central and northern Gaza.

The IDF has not confirmed the reports.

Earlier on Friday, an IDF officer was moderately injured by a grenade that terrorists from Gaza threw at him during violent riots along the security fence.

The IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said that troops responded by firing towards the terrorists. A hit was identified.

The injured officer was evacuated for medical treatment at a hospital. His family has been notified.

Meanwhile, the weekly violent “March of the Return” riots along the Gaza border continued on Friday. According to the IDF, thousands of Palestinian Arabs violently rioted along the Gaza border, hurling grenades, explosive devices, and firebombs at the security fence and IDF troops.
