Monday, Israeli troops occupying the Gaza International Airport in Rafah, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, installed surveillance cameras in the airport’s high buildings, the Palestinian News Agency, WAFA, reported.

Palestinian security sources told WAFA that soldiers also installed cameras aground the airport while military bulldozers uprooted residents farmlands in the area.  

The Rafah International Airport was closed by Israel after the beginning of the Al Aqsa Intifada late 2000. Israeli troops occupied the airport after shelling it in June 2006.
