KHAN YOUNIS, (PIC)-- Israeli occupation forces (IOF) on Sunday advanced into east of Khuza'a town Khan Younis district, south of the Gaza Strip, amidst shooting at farmers and civilian homes, local sources reported.

They told PIC reporter that six army tanks, five bulldozers and two patrols advanced more than 200 meters in the area and bulldozed cultivated lands and erected sand barriers.

The area is an open cultural land with no inhabitants after the IOF soldiers completely destroyed 15 houses forcing the inhabitants to seek refuge in other safer areas.

Meanwhile, in the West Bank IOF troops kidnapped two Palestinian citizens in Bil'in village, west of Ramallah, at dawn Sunday.

The Hebrew radio said that the two were taken into custody for "incitement" against the IOF during the weekly rally organized by the village inhabitants against the racist, separation wall.
