Over 10,000 Palestinians demonstrated and rioted along the Gaza border on Wednesday, marking Nakba Day.

Rioters threw rocks and attempted to damage the security fence, and smoke from burning tires inside Gaza is clearly visible from several kilometers away.

The IDF said it was responding with tear gas, rubber bullets and in some cases live fire.

Balloon-borne incendiary devices flew over the border and into southern Israel, where they sparked a number of small blazes.
