GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli military vehicles crossed the border fence into the northern Gaza Strip on Monday and leveled private Palestinian land, witnesses said.

Locals told Ma'an that four military bulldozers entered a border area near Jabalia in the besieged enclave and leveled agricultural land.

No injuries were reported.

Israeli authorities restrict access by Palestinian residents to areas along both the land and sea borders of the Gaza Strip in what is referred to as a "buffer zone."

The zone is enforced on the pretext of security, however its exact limits have historically fluctuated and have had a detrimental impact on the Palestinian agricultural and fishing sectors.

Israeli forces have repeatedly opened fire on Palestinian civilians near the border since a ceasefire agreement signed Aug. 26, 2014 ended a 50-day war between Israel and Hamas.
