Israeli bulldozers raze, level lands in Gaza

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli military bulldozers entered dozens of meters into the besieged Gaza Strip, on Monday, and razed lands along the "buffer zone" of the northern coastal enclave.

Local sources said that four Israeli bulldozers entered dozens of meters into Palestinian lands in northwestern Beit Lahiya in the northern Gaza, razed and leveled lands as Israeli drones flew overhead.

The incident comes several hours before the naval march is schedulued to set off from the Gaza seaport, as a form of protest against the nearly 12-year Israeli siege.

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.
