Israeli military vehicles raze land in Gaza border area

GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- Israeli military vehicles entered agricultural lands in a border area in southern Gaza on Monday, local residents said.

Witnesses told Ma'an that five Israeli excavators raided the al-Nahda neighborhood near Rafah and leveled Palestinian land.

Israeli reconnaissance planes flew overhead during the operation, with Israeli military tanks positioned on the border between Gaza and Israel.

Israeli forces frequently shoot at farmers and other civilians inside the Gaza Strip if they approach large swathes of land near the border that the Israeli military has deemed off-limits to Palestinians.

The "security buffer zone" extends between 500 meters and 1500 meters into the Strip, effectively turning local farms into no-go zones. more
