Israeli bulldozers raze, level lands in eastern Gaza

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Several Israeli military vehicles raided into the eastern borders of the besieged Gaza Strip on Wednesday morning.

Local witnesses told Ma'an that six Israeli bulldozers entered dozens of meters into lands near the return camps, east of Gaza City, razed and leveled lands near the security border fence.

Sources added that while Israeli bulldozers razed and leveled lands, Israeli drones flew overhead; 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 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.
