At least three armored Israeli military bulldozers and four tanks carried out, on Thursday morning, a limited invasion into Palestinian lands, east of Rafah, in the southern part of the besieged Gaza Strip.
Eyewitnesses said the tanks and bulldozers left a military base across the border fence, and advanced dozens of meters into the Palestinian lands.
They added that around four military jeeps were also stationed across the border fence in the area, while Israeli surveillance drones flew overhead.
The army conducts daily limited invasions into Palestinian lands close to the border fence, and frequently opens fire at the farmers, and workers, forcing them out of their lands.
Similar attacks repeatedly target local fishers and their boats in Palestinian territorial waters, in different parts of the improvised Gaza Strip.
