Israeli bulldozers level lands in southern Gaza

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Several Israeli bulldozers entered into the southern Gaza Strip on Monday and razed lands, under heavy military protection.

Witnesses told Ma'an that four Israeli bulldozers entered lands east of Rafah city, where they razed and leveled lands near the border fence with Israel.

Israeli military drones reportedly hovered overhead during the incursion.

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.
