Israeli vehicles enter northern Gaza, witnesses say

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli military vehicles and bulldozers crossed into an area of farmland in the northern Gaza Strip on Monday, witnesses said.

Locals told Ma'an that five bulldozers dug up agricultural lands east of Beit Hanoun.

Saber al-Zaghain, a popular resistance coordinator, told Ma'an that Israel conducted dredging operations on farmland near Beit Hanoun, damaging Palestinian crops.

"These crops have been planted after the recent Israeli war on the Gaza Strip, and now is the season to harvest them in order to be distributed to the markets," she said.

Al-Zaghain called on the international community to protect Gazan farmers during the harvest season.

An Israeli army spokeswoman did not return calls seeking comment.
