Israeli bulldozers raze lands in southern Gaza

Feb. 8, 2018 11:35 A.M. (Updated: Feb. 9, 2018 2:29 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Several Israeli bulldozers entered into the “buffer zone” along the Gaza border on Thursday morning where they razed lands under heavy military protection.

Locals told Ma’an that four Israeli military bulldozers raided into eastern al-Qarara, in the southern Gaza Strip district of Khan Younis, adding that forces opened fire during the incursion.

As the bulldozers razed and leveled lands, military drones flew overhead.

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.

The Israeli army also regularly detains and opens fire on unarmed Palestinian fishermen, shepherds, and farmers along the border areas if they approach the buffer zone, 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, which has been under an Israeli air, land, and sea blockade for 10 years.
