Israeli forces enter Gaza border area, create new barriers

GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- Israeli bulldozers escorted by military vehicles on Wednesday entered a Gaza border area and created earth-mounds in an area used by Palestinian agricultural land owners, locals said.

Witnesses told Ma'an that Israeli vehicles entered 300 meters into the northern Gaza Strip near Jabalia and piled up earth to create mounds which will prevent Palestinian farmers from accessing their land.

Israeli forces routinely enter border areas around the Gaza Strip and level agricultural land, usually with the intention of improving security capabilities around the besieged enclave.

Since the beginning of October, clashes along the border fence in Gaza have been frequent, with Israeli spokespeople reporting multiple breaches of the border fence.

The clashes generally start in protests, as Gazans have continuously held demonstrations in solidarity with Palestinians in the occupied West Bank and Israel during the most recent spate of upheaval.

During such clashes, Israeli forces generally shoot live bullets and tear gas at protesters.

At least 18 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli military forces since Oct. 1 after Israeli forces have opened fire at demonstrators.

A pregnant woman and her two-year-old daughter were also killed when an Israeli airstrike caused their home to collapse in southern Gaza City on Oct. 11.
