Israeli bulldozers raze lands in northern Gaza

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Several Israeli military vehicles raided Palestinian lands along Zikim beach in the northern besieged Gaza Strip, on Monday.

A Ma'an reporter said that six large D-9 Israeli military bulldozers entered dozens of meters into Palestinian lands, Zikim beach area near northern Gaza.

Sources added that Israeli military bulldozers razed and leveled the lands while drones flew overhead.

No shootings were reported.

Meanwhile, the Israeli navy opened heavy fire towards Palestinian fishing boats in northern Gaza.

Sources said that fishermen were forced to sail back to shore in fear for their lives.

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 nearly 12 years.
