Israeli bulldozers raid Palestinian lands in northern Gaza

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Several Israeli bulldozers raided into western Beit Lahiya town in the northern besieged Gaza Strip, on Wednesday morning.

Witnesses told a Ma’an reporter that six Israeli military bulldozers and an excavator raided dozens of meters into Palestinian lands coming from the Zikim military base.

Israeli bulldozers raided and leveled lands while Israeli 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.
