Welcome to Palestine Today, a service of the International Middle East Media Center, www.imemc.org for Tuesday August 6th, 2013.
Israeli tanks and bulldozers invade parts of Gaza as soldiers kidnap civilians from the West Bank. These stories, and more, coming up, stay tuned.
Several armored Israeli military vehicles and military bulldozers, carried out a limited invasion on Tuesday morning into the Al-Boreij refugee camp, in central Gaza, and uprooted farmlands.
Local sources said that six military bulldozers, accompanied by several jeeps, invaded the area, and fired several rounds of live ammunition before uprooting the lands.
The bulldozers and armored vehicles also invaded an area close to the Juhr Ed-Deen nearby village.
The army carries out nearby daily limited invasion into different areas of the coastal region, especially border areas in the northern and eastern parts of the Gaza Strip. Dozens of casualties have been reported due to army fire during these invasions.
The invasions are direct violations to the ceasefire agreement mediated by Egypt, in November of last year, between the resistance in Gaza and Tel Aviv.
Elsewhere, Israeli soldiers invaded on Tuesday various Palestinian communities in the occupied West Bank, and kidnapped twelve Palestinians.
Palestinian news sources reported invasions in the cities of Nablus and Jenin, northern West Bank as well as Hebron and Bethlehem in southern West Bank.
Troops searched and ransacked residents’ homes before taking the kidnapped men away to unknown destination.
