Israeli bulldozers enter Gaza border area

Sept. 11, 2014 10:06 A.M. (Updated: Sept. 13, 2014 10:01 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Four Israeli bulldozers entered a border area in southern Gaza Thursday and leveled private Palestinian land, witnesses said.

The bulldozers entered into Gaza near the Palestinian village of al-Qarara. The vehicles used the Kisufim border fence gate, located opposite a kibbutz of the same name, to enter the besieged enclave.

Military vehicles accompanying the bulldozers fired shots, with no reports of injuries.

Since the signing of a ceasefire agreement that ended 50 days of fighting between Israeli forces and Palestinian militants in Gaza on Aug. 26, the Israeli navy has in at least four instances fired at Gaza fishermen under the pretext that they had surpassed fishing zone limits.

Israel has severely limited Gaza's imports and exports since 2006, also imposing a no-go buffer zone ranging from 500 to 1,500 meters from the border, an area encompassing 17 percent of Gaza's total land.

The siege has led to frequent humanitarian crises for Gazans, and the UN and various human rights groups have repeatedly called on Israel to lift it.
