Along Gaza’s border, IDF troops shoot and fatally injure a Palestinian approaching the border fence near Jabaliya refugee camp. They then cross the border fence to arrest him and provide medical treatment. However, he succumbs to his injuries later in the day. Meanwhile, IDF troops arrest 3 Palestinians armed with knives attempting to cut through the border fence near Bayt Hanun; violently disperse Palestinian protesters along the border fence near the Erez border crossing (2 protesters are injured); repeatedly open fire on Palestinian farmers working near Khan Yunis, causing no damage or injuries. In the West Bank, IDF troops patrol near Salfit and Hebron. Israeli settlers cut the branches off 18 trees in Palestinian farmland near Hebron. In East Jerusalem, approximately 200 other right-wing Jewish activists tour Haram al-Sharif. Meanwhile, Israeli forces arrest 2 Palestinians at the sanctuary.
