The IDF intelligence has confirmed that the Hamas terror organization, which rules the Gaza Strip, has cancelled schools in Gaza on Wednesday and is instead sending the children to participate in the violent riots against Israel on the border fence.

Hamas distributed the message at 2:19 pm local time via radio stations, TV stations, and on Twitter.

The Arabs will mark Nakba Day on Wednesday, and mass protests are expected to take place on the border with Gaza. The terror groups have called on millions to arrive at the fence.

During the hours of the riots expected to commence in the afternoon, weather in Gaza is expected to be very hot at around 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Similarly, Muslims are marking the month of Ramadan, during which they fast throughout the day.

“This heat is a danger to children, who are susceptible to dehydration and heat-stroke. We call on Hamas to keep their children in school and not endanger them at the riots,” the IDF stated.

The Nakba events are planned to take place after prayers at the mosques, and Hamas has organized transportation for tens of thousands who will be pushed to march on Israel’s border. Hamas and other terror groups have been working hard to promote the events through social media and have produced clips and songs, including clips directly threatening the Eurovision song contest in Tel Aviv slated for Saturday night.

The Islamic Jihad terror group has threatened Israel that it will attack it with rockets if Israel harms the rioters.

The possibility of human losses is high, and therefore the prospects of an attack on Israel are also high. 62 Gazans were killed last year in violence on the Gaza border on Nakba Day, which was also utilized to protest the US’ relocation of its embassy to Jerusalem.

The Arabs mark Nakba Day on the date on which Israel declared its independence, a historic event they perceive as a “catastrophe.”

Israeli forces are on high alert, while the IDF has deployed Iron Dome defense systems throughout the country.

The Hamas-led weekly Gaza border riots, the so-called “Marches of Return,” have been taking place for over a year.

Since the organized violence commenced on 30 March 2018, some 2,200 terror-related incidents have been recorded, including 18 incidents of gunfire, 94 explosive devices and 600 Molotov cocktail attacks.

Violent attacks on the border claimed the life of an IDF soldier and 16 others were wounded.

Gazan sources say that more than 250 civilians, including many children, were killed and tens of thousands were wounded during the violence.

However, the IDF has proved, and the Hamas leadership has admitted, that the majority of those killed on the border were terrorists.

An IDF Spokesperson announced that some 10,000 Arab rioters are burning tires and throwing stones at several locations along the fence in the Gaza Strip, and several attempts have been made to approach the border fence.

The IDF is pushing back the rioters with crowd control means.

There are reports of several injuries among the rioters, as well as one fatality.

Several fires have broken out in recent hours near Israeli communities surrounding the Gaza Strip, apparently ignited by arson balloons launched by terrorists from Gaza.
