Israeli bulldozers leavel lands along border of central Gaza

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Several Israeli bulldozers entered into the “buffer zone” along the border with the central Gaza Strip on Tuesday, where they leveled lands under heavy military protection.

Locals told Ma’an that four Israeli D9 bulldozers entered into eastern Deir al-Balah in central Gaza from the nearby Kissufim military site and leveled lands in the area.

Israeli military drones were reportedly flying overhead during the incursion.

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.

The Israeli army also regularly detains and opens fire on unarmed Palestinian fishermen, shepherds, and farmers along the border areas if they approach the buffer zone, 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, which has been under an Israeli air, land, and sea blockade for 10 years.
