GAZA (Ma’an) — Israeli military vehicles staged a limited incursion into Palestinian lands in Beit Lahiya in the northern besieged Gaza Strip on Monday morning.Eyewitnesses told Ma’an that four Israeli military bulldozers entered tens of meters into Gaza territory and proceeded to level lands as Israeli drones hovered in sky.Eyewitnesses noted that no gunfire was reported during the incident.
An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma’an she would look into reports.
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 the 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.
