Several Israeli bulldozers entered into the “buffer zone” along the northern Gaza border, on Monday morning, where they razed lands under heavy military protection.
Locals told Ma’an News Agency that four Israeli military bulldozers raided lands in the town of Beit Lahiya.
As the bulldozers razed and leveled lands, military drones reportedly flew overhead.
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 10 years.
