Israel imposes an illegal buffer-zone along the border, preventing the Palestinians from entering their own lands that are close to the border fence. Dozens of casualties, including several fatalities were reported in similar attacks.

Despite the fact that when Israel declared this “buffer zone” it stated that it extends to 300 meters along the border with northern Gaza, on the ground, the zone extends to more than 1 kilometer, preventing the residents from planting their own lands, or even entering them.
