At approximately 8:20 am on Thursday 15 December 2011, seven Israeli tanks accompanied by two armored bulldozers moved under heavy covering fire about 200 meters into a destroyed area west of Erez crossing in North Gaza district. Bulldozers razed lands near the separation wall. At approximately 9:20 am on the same day, the forces withdrew from the area. According to Al Mezan’s field investigations, in the past days the Israeli occupation forces have attacked rubble collectors in the same area.
This is a blog about Gaza farmers, workers and all the civilian population living in Gaza Strip rural communities along the Green Line, suffering from daily Israeli attacks and resisting the implementation of a so called "buffer zone" by the Israeli Occupation Forces.
Note: this blog is focusing on Israeli attacks on civilians inside or around the so called "buffer zone". Attacks on resistance fighters, or attacks, usually airstrikes on civilians further inside the Gaza Strip, or along the Egypt border (apart from the eastern areas such as Al Shoka or the airport area) are usually not mentioned.
