Israeli tanks infiltrate southern Gaza borders, destroy farmlands, chase farmers and herders out


Israeli tanks, military vehicles and bulldozers today infiltrated the southern Gaza borders east of Rafah, destroying farmlands and shooting tear gas at farmers and herders in the area, reported WAFA correspondent. He said six military vehicles and bulldozers, backed by tanks, breached the borders, razed and destroyed privately owned land, and chased farmers and herders out of the area by shooting tear gas and live gunfire in their direction. The farmers and herders quickly left the area in fear for their lives, he said, and to avoid being captured by the Israeli army. Earlier, Israeli soldiers opened gunfire and shot tear gas at farmers and herders east of Jabaliya, in the north of the Gaza Strip. No one was injured in either incident, said the correspondent.
