Head of Coordination and Liaison Administration in Gaza, Col. Iyad Sarhan, urged Gazans to stay away from protests via the Arabic-language Facebook page of the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) on Thursday.

“How do you want to spend your Friday? With members of your family, or at the violence on the fence?” Sarhan wrote. “The IDF will not tolerate attempts to sabotage the fence or violations of Israel’s sovereignty!”

“We too want a Friday without casualties among you, but this depends on you and you alone,” Sarhan added. “Keep your distance from the fence area, in so doing you will keep yourselves safe.”

This warning comes as four Palestinians were killed and dozens more injured last week during the weekly March of Return protests along the Gaza border that tend to ramp up on Friday after prayers.

Some 8,000 Palestinians took part in the protests last Friday. They burned tires and threw rocks and an explosive device toward troops, though it did not land in Israeli territory.

    In reality, violence at the fence for these loons is a family affair.

    Release the hounds!
