Israeli bulldozers enter Gaza border area, raze lands

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Several Israeli military vehicles entered eastern Gaza City on Wednesday near the Nahal Oz military site and razed agricultural lands in the area, witnesses told Ma'an, hours after five Israeli military bulldozers crossed the border and raided an area near the al-Bureij refugee camp in the central Gaza Strip early Wednesday morning while drones flew above the area.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma'an they were looking into reports.

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 unilaterally declared “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 practice has in effect destroyed much of the agricultural sector of the blockaded coastal enclave.
