Israeli bulldozers level lands in central Gaza

Dec. 10, 2018 12:20 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 10, 2018 4:08 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli bulldozers entered dozens of meters into the "buffer zone" east of Gaza City, on Monday.

Locals told Ma’an that four Israeli D9 bulldozers raided into eastern Gaza City, in central besieged Gaza.

Sources added that the bulldozers razed and leveled lands as Israeli drones hovered overhead.

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 nearly 12 years.
