Passover begins Friday at sundown – and, faced with the threat of a Hamas-organized march on the Gaza border the same day, Israel is taking every possible measure to ensure that Israelis can celebrate the holiday in peace:

Hamas said it expected as many as 100,000 Palestinians to take part in Friday’s so-called “March of Return.”

Bracing for potential violence, the IDF has deployed Infantry, Armored Corps and Combat Intelligence troops, alongside special forces, sappers and more than 100 snipers to the border.

Military, Border Police and Israel Police troops on the ground will be backed by aerial assistance to better monitor protesters’ movement along the fence and alert the troops in the event of attempts to target IDF posts or infiltrate border-adjacent communities.
