According to local Palestinian sources, several Israeli military vehicles and bulldozers penetrated into the Palestinian citizens’ lands, east of Deir Al-Balah, in central Gaza, razing and vandalizing agricultural properties near the separation fence.
Palestinian eyewitnesses reported that 8 Israeli bulldozers invaded the area, vandalizing Palestinians’ lands.
Israeli forces reportedly fired live bullets and toxic tear gas bombs at the Palestinian farmers, forcing them to leave their lands.
