Israeli bulldozers raid borderline in southern, northern Gaza Strip

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Several Israeli army bulldozers entered the southern and northern Gaza Strip on Wednesday, witnesses said.

Witnesses told Ma’an that a number of Israeli bulldozers crossed the borderline near the town of Khuzaa east of Khan Yunis.

They added that several soldiers stepped out of military vehicles to search the area near the border fence as drones and airplanes flew overhead.

Meanwhile, four Israeli bulldozers coming from the Israeli military base of Zikim reportedly raided the town of Beit Lahiya in the northern Gaza Strip.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma’an that they were looking into the reports.

Israel maintains a "security buffer zone" along Gaza's land and sea border and frequently levels land inside and close to this zone.

Palestinians who work near the “buffer zone” between the besieged Palestinian enclave and Israel often come under fire from military forces, as the Israeli military has not made clear the precise area of the designated zone.
