Israeli military bulldozers entered dozens of meters into eastern Beit Hanoun, on Wednesday, in the northern besieged Gaza Strip.
A Ma’an reporter said that four Israeli D-9 bulldozers razed and leveled lands as Israeli drones flew overhead.
Earlier on Wednesday, Israeli forces deployed at the Nahal Oz military site in eastern Gaza City had opened fire towards two Palestinians.
Witnesses reported that Israeli forces had opened fire at two Palestinians outside of the “buffer zone.”
No injuries were reported.
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.
