Israeli bulldozers level lands in northern Gaza

Dec. 26, 2017 1:55 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 27, 2017 4:55 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli military bulldozers leveled lands in the northern Gaza Strip on Tuesday, according to locals.

Witnesses told Ma’an that six Israeli military vehicles and bulldozers raided into last east of the Jabaliya refugee camp in northern Gaza, where they razed and leveled lands near the border fence with Israel.

No shootings or injuries were reported.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma’an that they were looking into reports.

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.
