The Israeli army bulldozers and tanks leveled four houses and bulldozed scores of dunams of farming lands in Al Shoka area in Rafah city, in the southeastern part of the Gaza strip, Thursday.

The houses belong to the Al Fara and Abu Mo’amer families, local sources reported.

 No reason was given by Israeli forces for the destruction of the homes, although it appears to be part of the massive operation ‘Summer Rain’ being conducted by Israeli forces against the Palestinian people in the northern and southern ends of the Gaza Strip.
