At approximately 8:40 am on Wednesday 23 January 2013, 10 Israeli tanks
accompanied by armored bulldozers moved under sporadic covering fire
about 200 meters into Al Qatbaniya area southeast of Beit Hanoun.
Bulldozers leveled lands that have been frequently razed before. The
Israeli forces then moved to the north wards. Palestinian farmers were
terrified and abandoned their work.
