Several Israeli military vehicles raided Palestinian lands, on Wednesday, east of Gaza City, in the central besieged Gaza Strip.
A Ma’an reporter said that eight large D-9 Israeli military bulldozers entered the region, dozens of meters into Palestinian lands.
Sources added that Israeli military bulldozers razed and leveled the lands while drones 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 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 nearly 12 years.
