Israeli bulldozers raze lands in northeastern Gaza

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Several Israeli military vehicles raided the eastern borders of the occupied Gaza Strip on Monday morning and leveled lands along the “buffer zone” of the northern coastal enclave.

Locals told Ma’an that four Israeli bulldozers entered dozens of meters into lands east of Gaza City, and razed and leveled lands as Israeli drones flew overhead.

A similar raid was carried out in eastern Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip on Sunday evening.

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.
