Israeli troops invaded, earlier Wednesday, Palestinian lands near Beit Lahia town, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip town of Beit Lahiya, while Israeli navy ships attacked fishermen off the coast of Gaza.
Local Palestinian sources in northern Gaza said that several armored Israeli vehicles, including a bulldozer, invaded lands adjacent to the perimeter fence near Beit Lahia town.
They added that the military vehicles advanced dozens of meters into Palestinian farmlands, before bulldozing some areas close to the fence.
Local farmers were forced to leave their lands early in the morning due to the invasion that occurred while military drones hovered over the area.
The army also carried out a similar invasion, along the eastern parts of the Gaza Strip.
In the meantime, Israeli navy ships attacked several Palestinian fishing boats, off the coast of Gaza, mainly in the Sudaniyya area, north of the coastal territory.
The navy chased some of the fishing boats, forcing them to the shore without being able to fish and provide for their families.
The attack was carried out in Palestinian territorial waters, nor far from the shore of the besieged coastal region. It is part of frequent violations against the fishermen, farmer, and workers in the Gaza Strip.
In the Gaza Strip, there are about 3,000 fishermen, sponsoring dozens of thousands of individuals, with fish being a major source of nutrition for Gaza’s 2 million residents.
It is worth mentioning that Israel frequently unilaterally increases and decreases the fishing zone in the Gaza Strip, and constantly attack the fishermen, leading to dozens of casualties, including fatalities, in addition to abducting dozens of fishermen and confiscating their boats.
