Armored vehicles of the Israeli army invaded early on Wednesday, the northern besieged Gaza Strip town of Beit Hanoun, according to local sources.

Sources and witnesses said that a number of armored vehicles including combat tanks, rolled about tens of meters, deep into farm lands, owned by local Palestinian farmers in the Beit Hanoun town, northern Gaza Strip.

Witnesses added that the Israeli invasion included opening fire and bulldozing of some farm lands, east of the town, inching closer to a local memorial site in the town, itself.

Along the northeastern border of the Gaza Strip, according to witnesses, Israeli army tanks rolled a few meters inside Palestinian farm lands.

Israeli forces frequently invade Palestinian-owned lands along the border between Gaza and Israel, causing devastation of crops owned by local Palestinian farmers living in the area long before the creation of the state of Israel, in 1948.
