Israel News Alert

Israeli military targets and kills two Palestinians considered suspicious at the Gaza border on September 17

TIMEFRAME expected from 9/18/2018, 12:00 AM until 9/20/2018, 11:59 PM (Asia/Gaza). COUNTRY/REGION West Bank


The Israeli military targeted and killed two Palestinians in a missile strike on Monday night (local time), September 17, near the border between Israel and the Gaza Strip. According to the Israeli military, the two individuals were placing a suspicious object at the border. During a protest that took place the same day, Israeli gunfire injured 26 protesters.


Palestinian protesters have rallied at the Gaza border fence weekly since March 30 in a Hamas-supported movement dubbed "The Great March of Return." More than 170 Palestinians and one Israeli soldier have been killed in border clashes since the protests began.


Individuals present in Israel and the Palestinian Territories are advised to monitor developments to the situation and to avoid all protests and demonstrations due to the risk of violence. 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.
