Israeli military vehicles, bulldozers enter Gaza

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli military vehicles escorted bulldozers into a border area in central Gaza on Wednesday, locals said.

Seven bulldozers flanked by four military vehicles crossed into a border area near al-Bureij refugee camp at around 6 a.m., penetrating 300 meters into fields and leveling agricultural lands, witnesses told Ma'an.

Israeli drones were hovering at a low distance during the incident, locals added, with Israeli forces firing smoke bombs.

An Israeli army spokesman said there was "routine activity along the fence," without providing further details.
