Israeli bulldozers raze, level lands in Gaza Strip

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Several Israeli military vehicles raided the eastern borders of the besieged Gaza Strip on Monday morning.

Locals said that six Israeli military vehicles raided into the area near the eastern borders of Gaza City, razed and leveled lands while Israeli forces were putting up a security fence from inside the borders.

Earlier today, a number of Israeli military vehicles raided into Al-Breij refugee camp in the central Gaza Strip.

A Ma'an reporter said that four large D-9 Israeli military bulldozers entered dozens of meters into lands near the “return camps” as drones flew overhead.

Military bulldozers began to raze lands and setting up a security fence; no shootings were reported.

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.
