Israeli Bulldozers Infiltrate into a Limited Gaza Border Area

Israeli bulldozers on Thursday morning infiltrated, under military protection, into a limited border area east of al-Bureij refugee camp in central Gaza.

Israeli military bulldozers entered dozens of meters into the al-Bureij refugee camp in the central besieged Gaza Strip, witnesses said.

Witnesses said that several bulldozers coming from an Israeli military base across the borderline raided the area, razing and leveling lands near the border fence.

Drones flew over the area while the bulldozers were at work. No shooting was reported.

According to local sources, four armored bulldozers came from Tuttah Gate and razed plots of lands east of al-Bureij camp.

Although it accepted an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire deal in 2014, Israel has been persisting since then in committing daily violations against the Palestinians in Gaza, including repeated gunfire attacks on fishermen and farmers, and military incursions.

Palestinians who work near the “buffer zone” between the Palestinian enclave and Israel often come under fire from military forces, as the Israeli military has not made clear the precise area of the designated zone.

The practice has in effect destroyed much of the agricultural and fishing sectors of the blockaded coastal enclave.
