Overview: Sporadic rocket and mortar shell fire from the Gaza Strip
into Israeli territory continues. A Palestinian armed with a
Kalashnikov assault rifle was shot and killed by an IDF force near
the Gaza Strip security fence.
The events of March 30 passed
relatively quietly without significant
media provocations meant to embarrass Israel. Rallies were held near
the border in Lebanon and Jordan and contained by local security
forces. In Judea, Samaria and the Gaza Strip there was rioting on a
small scale which did not spin out of control. The events held in the
Middle East and around the world received scant media coverage.

shovel (IDF Spokesman, April 1, 2012).
