Israeli forces open fire on Palestinian lands and homes in Gaza Strip

GAZA (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces opened fire at Palestinian lands and homes in the northern Gaza Strip on Thursday morning, while Israeli military vehicles entered the besieged territory in central Gaza.

Witnesses told Ma’an that Israeli forces stationed at the borders of Beit Lahiya in the northern Gaza Strip opened fire at Palestinian land and homes. No injuries were reported during the incident.

Meanwhile, four Israeli military bulldozers entered the territory of Gaza east of Deir al-Balah in the central Gaza Strip.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma’an she would look into reports on the incidents.

Israeli army incursions inside the Palestinian territory have long been a near-daily occurrence, as the Israeli army regularly opens fire on unarmed Palestinian fishermen and farmers along the border areas if they approach Israel’s unilaterally declared “buffer zone,” which lies on both the land and sea sides of Gaza.

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