Military Tanks, Bulldozers Infiltrate the Southern Gaza Strip, Raze Lands

Israeli bulldozers and tanks infiltrated, on Wednesday, the border of the southern besieged Gaza Strip, razed lands and opened fire, the Palestinian News & Information Agency (WAFA) reported.

WAFA correspondent stated that eight military tanks and bulldozers executed a limited incursion into the southern Gaza Strip, in the Al-Fukhari area, east of Khan Younis and leveled lands, while firing live rounds.

The correspondent added that the machinery entered tens of meters across the border between Israel and Gaza, and razed lands belonging to Palestinian citizens of the Gaza Strip. No injuries were reported.

Background

The Israeli army frequently infiltrates the border of the Gaza Strip, opens fire at farmers and shepherds, and razes Palestinian-owned lands.

Furthermore, Israeli Navy ships repeatedly open fire at and harass Palestinian fishermen as they sail within the permitted fishing zone dictated by the occupation.

Since 2007 the Israeli occupation has maintained a land, air, and sea blockade on the Gaza Strip, controlling all goods entering and leaving the tiny coastal enclave, causing a humanitarian catastrophe for the more than two million inhabitants.

The Israeli military has waged four major assaults on the Gaza Strip in 200820122014, and most recently in May of 2021, leading to widespread death and destruction.
