Gaza - A
number of Israeli tanks and bulldozers crossed on Thursday morning the
Khan Younis eastern borders in the southern Gaza Strip in a limited way.
media reported that several bulldozers came out of the Abu Rida gate
east of the town of Khuza'a and pushed into the agricultural lands of
citizens, moving along the border.
Witnesses said the Israeli occupation forces are razing near Erez (Beit Hanoun) crossing in the northern Gaza Strip.
warplanes including F16s, Apache helicopters, and drones have been
frequently flying the Gaza skies for the past few days.
comes in the context of tightened Israeli, Egyptian border restrictions
with the Egyptian military reported to have destroyed more than 90% of
the tunnels along the border with Gaza, citing security concerns.
campaign against tunnels put the Gaza Strip at a tipping crisis point
as the entry of fuel, building materials, food stuffs among others used
to come from Egypt has not been possible.
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.
