The Israeli occupation army attacked, early on Monday, the southern besieged Gaza Strip, with missiles and artillery, after what the army claims were rockets fired from the armed resistance in Gaza.

The Israeli army justified the attack by claiming that a projectile fell from Gaza, onto the Mediterranean coast in southern Israel, causing no injuries or damage, the Palestinian Information reported.

Israeli fighter jets fired missiles at farmland, to the east of Rafah, in southern Gaza, leveling a resistance site, and leaving a large crater. No injuries were reported.

In southern Gaza, the army fired two air-to-surface missiles along the border with Israel, to the east of Khan Younis, wrecking another site and causing civilian property damage, but no casualties.

In a related context, Israeli military bulldozers, on Monday morning, advanced across the Gaza border, east of Khan Younis, and razed farmlands under the cover of army fire and the use of drones overhead.

Furthermore, the Israeli occupation forces, on Saturday, opened fire at Palestinian farmers while they were working on their land, east of Khan Younis, forcing them to leave the area.

According to Palestinian WAFA News correspondent, Israeli troops fired several rounds at farmers from military watchtowers near the border between the besieged Gaza Strip and Israel.
