Israeli bulldozers raid central Gaza Strip refugee camp

Aug. 31, 2016 10:53 A.M. (Updated: Aug. 31, 2016 5:18 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli bulldozers raided al-Bureij refugee camp and leveled lands in the central Gaza Strip district of Deir Al-Balah Wednesday morning.

Witnesses told Ma’an that four Israeli bulldozers crossed into the Gaza Strip from Israel and raided the eastern side of the camp as Israeli drones flew overhead.

Witnesses added that Israeli soldiers randomly opened fire, though no injuries were reported.

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

Israeli military incursions inside the besieged Gaza Strip and near the “buffer zone" which lies on both land and sea sides of Gaza, have long been a near-daily occurrence.

Palestinians who work near the “buffer zone” between the 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.

The Israeli army regularly open fires on Palestinian fisherman and farmers along the border areas, despite a ceasefire agreement that ended the 2014 war.

As of Aug. 22, the United Nations had documented 45 Israeli military incursions into the Gaza Strip so far this year.
