Israeli bulldozers level lands in southern Gaza

March 25, 2018 12:39 P.M. (Updated: March 27, 2018 2:04 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- Several Israeli military vehicles entered into the southern Gaza Strip on Sunday morning, and razed lands along the border with Israel.

Local sources told Ma’an that five military bulldozers razed lands east of Khan Younis near the border fence, while a drone flew overhead.

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.
