Israeli forces enter southern Gaza Strip, level lands

Les forces sionistes entrent dans le sud de la bande Gaza et nivellent les terres

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- 

Israeli military vehicles escorted several bulldozers into the southern Gaza Strip on Tuesday morning, where they leveled Palestinian agricultural fields

Witnesses told Ma'an that five military bulldozers escorted by military vehicles crossed the border fence in the eastern outskirts of the town of Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip, “and carried out earthworks near the border fence.”

The military vehicles entered the Palestinian side of the border through a gate near Israel’s Sufa military post.

Witnesses added that Israeli reconnaissance planes hovered over the area during the activities on the ground.

An Israeli army spokesperson said they were looking into reports.

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.

Palestinians who work near the unilaterally declared “buffer zone” between the Palestinian enclave and Israel also often come under fire from military forces, as the Israeli military has not made clear the precise area of the designated zone.

The practice has in effect destroyed much of the agricultural sector of the blockaded coastal enclave.
