GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli military vehicles and bulldozers crossed the border fence into the besieged Gaza Strip early Sunday morning east of the southern Gaza Strip city of Khan Yunis and leveled lands, witnesses told Ma'an, with no gunfire was reported.

The Israeli vehicles and bulldozers came from Israel's Sofa military post.

An Israeli army spokesperson said they were looking into 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 and fishing sector of the blockaded coastal enclave.
