Israeli bulldozers raze lands in Gaza

Nov. 20, 2018 11:32 A.M. (Updated: Nov. 20, 2018 2:47 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Several Israeli bulldozers entered dozens of meters into the central besieged Gaza Strip, on Tuesday morning, and razed Palestinian lands along the Gaza border.

Locals told Ma'an that several Israeli bulldozers razed and leveled lands about 50-100 meters along the Israeli security border fence while drones flew overhead.

Meanwhile, Israeli naval forces opened fire towards Palestinian fishing boats in northern Gaza, forcing fishermen to sail back to shore.

No injuries 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 nearly 12 years.
