Israeli Army Incursion into Central Gaza to Bulldoze Farmland

By Saed Bannoura | IMEMC & Agencies –

Several armored Israeli military vehicles and bulldozers carried out, on Wednesday morning, a limited invasion into an area east of the al-Maghazi refugee camp, in central Gaza, and bulldozed farmlands.

Eyewitnesses said the vehicles, accompanied by four armored D9 bulldozers, stationed in the Kissufim military base across the border fence, advanced into the area while firing rounds of live ammunition at a number of homes, causing damage but no injuries.

They added that the army bulldozed and uprooted Palestinian lands, and fired rounds of live ammunition at local farmers, forcing them to leave.

The invasion is part of daily Israeli violations against the Palestinians in the besieged and impoverished coastal region.

Such attacks, include uprooting farmlands, and repeated assaults on fishers in Gaza waters and even while on shore.

Last Saturday, Israeli navy gunships opened fire on Palestinian fishing boats killing Tawfiq Abu Ryala, 34, and kidnapped two others.

  1. Power plants shut down, fisherman shot and killed, farmlands bulldozed and destroyed, Palestinians living in refugee camps, the zionists are still ridding the Galilee of Arabs, by collectively punishing them, in every, sadistic way, possible.

    @People1stPlanet ISRAEL’s arrogance is playing out in their mistreatment of Palenstinians. Oppressed become brutal oppressors.

  3. This is Israel, “mowing the grass.” This is part of the “price tag,” for Palestinians’ existence. Obama and Kerry will say that Israel has a right to defend itself. American congressmen, of course, are “Israel-sexuals.”
    And the beat goes on.

  4. Why are your “contributors” unnamed? It’s hard to express my response to this piece because your have lumped several ideas, uncorrelated, to the item. The piece is headlined “Israeli Incursion” undocumented. Next, you imply that the shutdown of the power source is Israel’s doing. If you want your readers to follow you seriously, you have to do better than this! Try tackling the Palestine-Israeli problems seriously. These are people – on both sides – who are not well served by your rhetoric
