Earlier on Friday Israeli forces along the border with Gaza began preparations for mass riots expected to include the participation of  tens of thousands of Palestinians.

Hundreds of Israel Defense Forces snipers are deployed along the fence that separates the Hamas-run enclave from Israel, Ynet reported.

The riots this week revolve around what many Palestinians call Naksa Day, or Day of the Setback.

It marks Israel's conquest of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip in the Six Day War of 1967.

Participation is expected to be high due to Ramadan. The bulk of protesters are expected to arrive at the fence in the afternoon after prayers, Ynet reported.

In addition to soldiers posted at the border, hundreds of troops were deployed there ahead of the event from the Nahal, Golani and Givati Brigades as well as special forces. Photographers and drone operators will document the riots for legal and media purposes.
