Israeli bulldozers raid Palestinian lands in southern Gaza

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Several Israeli bulldozers raided into eastern Rafah City in the southern besieged Gaza Strip, on Friday morning.

Witnesses told a Ma'an reporter that three Israeli D9 military bulldozers and an excavator raided dozens of meters into Palestinian lands in eastern Rafah City, coming from the Sufa military base and heading towards Khan Younis.

Israeli bulldozers raided and leveled lands.

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.
