Event

An estimated 6000 Palestinians protested along the Israeli-Gazan border on Friday, October 4, demanding an end to the Israeli blockade of Gaza and the right to return to lands from which their families fled during the 1948 Arab-Israeli War. Some Palestinian protesters threw explosive devices toward the border barrier; Israeli soldiers, for their part, retaliated with riot-dispersal means, shooting and killing one Palestinian and wounding some 54 others, including 22 by live gunfire.

Similar protests and clashes are to be expected along the Israeli-Gazan border over the coming weeks.

Context

Palestinians have staged weekly protests at the Israeli-Gazan border fence since March 30, 2018. Over 300 Palestinians have been killed and nearly 7000 have been wounded.

Advice

Individuals in Israel and the Palestinian Territories are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all demonstrations due to the risk of violence, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities and their home governments. Seek immediate shelter in the event of a rocket attack.

Some Western governments advise their citizens against all travel to the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, and areas near the Israeli-Lebanese, Israeli-Syrian, and Israeli-Egyptian borders.
