Israeli bulldozers raze lands in southern Gaza

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Several Israeli bulldozers entered into eastern Khan Younis in the southern besieged Gaza Strip, on Wednesday morning.

Witnesses told a Ma'an reporter that seven Israeli vehicles including four bulldozers entered dozens of meters into the border fence in the Abasan al-Kabira town in eastern Khan Younis.

Israeli bulldozers razed and leveled lands while drones 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 nearly 12 years.
