Though Hamas says the protests against Israel it has called for on March 30 will be peaceful, Israel is taking every measure possible to protect its borders and prevent widespread violence:

Bracing for potential violence, the IDF has deployed additional troops to the border. Security forces have been ordered to prevent a breach of the border fence, but they have also been instructed to exercise maximum restraint so as to minimize the number of Palestinian casualties.

“We will not allow security infrastructure to be compromised. If the Palestinians think they can organize a march and cross the fence into our territory, they are wrong,” Eizenkot said Tuesday.

“We will exercise a hard hand to prevent protesters from infiltrating into Israel. The responsibility [for what happens] will be on [Hamas leader Ismail] Haniyeh and whoever sent them there.”
