Event

At least one Palestinian was killed and another four wounded near the Gaza border on Friday, November 29. Israeli troops reportedly fired live rounds to disperse Palestinian demonstrators who had approached the border fence east of Khan Yunis. According to military officials, the demonstrators hurled rocks and explosive devices, prompting security forces to respond with riot dispersal means.

Additionally, alert sirens were sounded in southern Israel on Friday after a rocket was launched from Gaza. The rocket reportedly landed in an open field; no casualties or damages were immediately reported.

Further cross-border fire is possible over the Israeli-Gazan border over the coming hours and days, including rockets fired by Palestinian militants toward and into Israel and retaliatory Israel Defense Forces (IDF) strikes on the Gaza Strip.

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.
