Israel does not allow Palestinians to reach their lands along the Gaza border with Israel and often infiltrates the borders to either destroy the land and level it or to build dirt mounds causing serious damage to fertile agricultural land.

The Israeli occupation army regularly opens fire at people near the border fence with Gaza, including farmers attending to their land, in order to keep them as far from the border as possible.
