Israeli bulldozers level lands in southern Gaza Strip


GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Several Israeli military vehicles Wednesday morning entered northeastern Rafah City in the southern Gaza Strip and proceeded to level lands near the border.

Witnesses said that four Israeli military bulldozers entered some 50 meters into Palestinian lands from the Sufah military site between the districts of Rafah and Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip.

The bulldozers reportedly leveled lands near the border. No shootings were reported.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma'an she would look into reports on the incident.

Israeli military incursions inside the besieged Gaza Strip and near the “buffer zone" which lies on both land and sea sides of Gaza, have long been a near-daily occurrence. more
