GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A number of Israeli military vehicles conducted a limited incursion into Palestinian lands east of al-Bureij refugee camp in the central Gaza Strip, witnesses said.

Eyewitness said they saw four Israeli military vehicles, including bulldozers, crossing though a gate in the border fence and proceed to level lands. No gunfire was reported.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma’an they would look into the reports.

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

Palestinians who work near the “buffer zone” often come under fire from Israeli military forces, as the authorities have not made clear the precise area of the designated zone.

The practice has in effect destroyed much of the agricultural and fishing sector of the blockaded coastal enclave.
