Israeli forces briefly enters southern Gaza 'buffer zone'

Jan. 12, 2017 11:03 A.M. (Updated: Jan. 12, 2017 2:16 P.M.)
GAZA (Ma’an) -- Israeli military vehicles reportedly staged a limited incursion into private Palestinian lands east of Khan Yunis in the southern Gaza Strip at dawn on Thursday.

Locals told Ma’an that four Israeli bulldozers entered 50 meters into private lands in the area, while a number of military tanks were stationed across the fence.

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

Palestinians who work near the “buffer zone” often come under fire from Israeli military forces, as the authorities have 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.
