GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Several Israeli bulldozers entered Beit Lahiya in the northern Gaza Strip on Thursday.
Witnesses told Ma’an that seven Israeli bulldozers entered dozens of meters into Beit Lahiya from the Israeli Zikim military site along the border with the besieged Gaza Strip.
Witnesses added that Israeli drones were also flying above the area at the time.
An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma’an they would look into reports on the incident.
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.
