Israeli bulldozers raze lands in southern Gaza

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Several Israeli military vehicles raided Palestinian lands along the eastern borders of Khan Younis in the southern besieged Gaza Strip, on Tuesday morning.

According to local sources, six large D-9 Israeli military bulldozers entered dozens of meters into Palestinian lands, coming from the Israeli security border fence heading south.

Sources added that Israeli military bulldozers razed and leveled lands east of the Khan Younis-area town of Khuzaa while drones flew overhead.

No shootings 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 nearly 12 years.
