Israeli bulldozers enter southern Gaza

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Several Israeli bulldozers entered the city-limits of Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip early Friday, witnesses said.

Witnesses told Ma'an that the bulldozers entered the eastern area of al-Qarrara, located in Khan Younis, and searched the area.

Several Israeli bulldozers had also entered al-Qarrara on Thursday. Separately Thursday, Israeli forces shot and injured three Palestinians after entering a border area in the southern Gaza Strip on in order to level Palestinian land.

Israeli forces have made a total of 52 military incursions into the besieged enclave since the start of 2015, according to documentation by the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.

Two Palestinian farmers were shot and injured by Israeli military forces this month while farming near the border area, according to Gaza's Ministry of Health.

UNOCHA meanwhile reported a total of 15 incidents of Israeli forces opening fire at Palestinians on both land and sea borders.
