Israeli bulldozers raid Palestinian lands, farmers targeted in Gaza

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Several Israeli military vehicles raided Palestinian lands in eastern Beit Hanoun town in the northern besieged Gaza Strip, on Tuesday morning.

Witnesses told a Ma'an reporter that several Israeli military bulldozers entered into Palestinian lands, coming from the Israeli security border fence in eastern Beit Hanoun.

Additionally, Israeli forces fired tear-gas canisters towards Palestinian farmers in eastern al-Fukhari town in the Khan Younis district in the southern Gaza Strip.

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.
