Hamas encourages the rioters taking part in the violence on the Israel-Gaza fence to bring knives & guns with them, and to kidnap Israeli civilians.Nothing peaceful about that.

Some young men brought knives and fence cutters. At a gathering point east of Gaza City, organizers urged protesters over loudspeakers to burst through the fence, telling them Israeli soldiers were fleeing their positions, even as they were reinforcing them.
