Israeli Occupation Forces Invade Gaza Border, Raze Land

Af.M | DOP -

The Israeli occupation forces carried out on Tuesday morning a small-scale incursion into a border area in the east of the besieged Gaza Strip.

According to local sources, several armored bulldozers escorted by some Merkava tanks advanced from a military post into a border area in the east of Deir al-Balah City in central Gaza.

The heavy machinery embarked on leveling and digging swaths of agricultural land, which are located several meters from the border fence.

The military incursion forced local farmers to leave the area in fear for their lives.

Similar incursions into different border areas of Gaza took place yesterday.

The eastern border areas of Gaza are repeatedly exposed to Israeli military incursions and gunfire attacks. Such violations cause considerable damage to crops and prevent farmers from working their lands.
