Israeli forces raze lands, open fire at farmers in Gaza

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces, escorted by military vehicles carried out two incursions into the northern and southern besieged Gaza Strip on Wednesday morning.

A Ma'an reporter said that eight Israeli military vehicles entered dozens of meters into the Beit Hanoun village in the northern Gaza Strip, and began to raze and level lands on the outskirts of the village.

Meanwhile, four Israeli military vehicles coming from the Israeli Sufa military site raided the Nahda neighborhood in Rafah City in the southern Gaza Strip, and razed lands while Israeli drones flew overhead.

In eastern Gaza City, Israeli forces opened fire on Palestinian shepherds and farmers; no injuries were reported.

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 regularly detains and opens fire on unarmed Palestinian fishermen, shepherds, and farmers along the border areas if they approach the unilaterally declared buffer zone.
