Israeli bulldozers level lands in southern Gaza Strip

Dec. 27, 2016 1:17 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 27, 2016 5:40 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Several Israeli military vehicles raided eastern Rafah city in the southern Gaza Strip early Tuesday morning.

Witnesses told Ma’an that four Israeli military bulldozers stationed at the Sufa military site crossed some 50 meters into the borderline near Rafah at around 7:20 am and razed lands near the border fence.

Israeli military incursions inside the besieged Gaza Strip and near the “buffer zone," which lies on both the land and sea sides of Gaza, have long been a near-daily occurrence.

Palestinians who work near the unilaterally declared “buffer zone” between the Palestinian enclave and Israel often come under fire from military forces, as the Israeli military has not made clear the precise area of the designated zone.

The practice has in effect destroyed much of the agricultural sector of the blockaded coastal enclave.
