Israeli forces level agricultural land inside Gaza Strip

Nov. 5, 2015 10:48 A.M. (Updated: Nov. 5, 2015 2:23 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma’an) – Israeli forces on Thursday morning crossed the border fence between Israel and the southern Gaza Strip with bulldozers and "leveled" agricultural land in the area, locals said.

Locals said Israeli forces entered the area along the al-Farahin and al-Qarara neighborhoods of the Gaza strip a few hundred meters inside the border fence and began flattening the ground there with bulldozers, and removing visual obstructions such as trees and bushes.

The forces, locals said, fired gunshots into the air and created smokes screens to conceal their activities. Locals added that Israeli drones hovered over the area during the Israeli military operation.

An Israeli army spokesperson did not immediately respond for comment.

Since the beginning of October, clashes along the border fence in Gaza have been frequent, with Israeli spokespeople reporting multiple breaches of the border fence. The clashes generally start in protests, as Gazans have continuously held demonstrations in solidarity with Palestinians in the occupied West Bank and Israel during the most recent spate of upheaval.

During such clashes, Israeli forces generally shoot live bullets and tear gas at protesters.

"Palestinian forces on Thursday morning crossed the border fence between Gaza and southern Israel with bulldozers and "leveled" agricultural land in the area" Imagine that!! Any idea of what the reaction will be on that? And still they keep on saying: "we left Gaza, we don't occupy it".
