GAZA, (PIC)-- Israeli occupation forces (IOF) mounting army vehicles and escorting bulldozers advanced into northern Gaza Strip near the Beit Hanun (Erez) crossing and razed a number of destroyed buildings in the area.
Eyewitnesses said that four huge bulldozers made the job while the IOF soldiers provided the protection in the industrial area.
They noted that the IOF opened intensive gunfire in the process as warplanes hovered over the area and the Strip in general.
IOF troops also assisted Jewish settlers in the Ramallah village of Singil when the settlers blocked the way of Palestinian farmers who were heading to their land on Tuesday.
Witnesses said that the settlers threw stones at the farmers and tried to seize their tractors but the framers repelled them, after which IOF soldiers encircled the village and blocked travel in and out of it in a bid to provide protection for the settlers.
