Violence erupted between Israelis and Palestinians on the Gaza border Friday, just a day after Israel celebrated the 70th anniversary of its independence.

Massive clouds of black smoke from burning tires consumed the air as several thousands of Palestinians gathered in tents along the border.

Meanwhile, some protestors charged towards the fence, throwing stones and flying burning kites.

Israeli soldiers opened fire on Palestinians, killing four and wounding more than 150 others, according to the Gaza Health Ministry. These are the latest deaths in an ongoing campaign by Palestinians to disrupt the border since late March. So far, a total of 32 people have been killed, while more than 1,600 have been wounded.

Israel’s decision to shoot protestors has been condemned by many in the international community. However, the Jewish State says it is defending its border against terrorists.

The military has said protestors have tried to destroy the border fence with explosives, firebombs and other means. It has also said snipers only target the “main instigators.”
