MEMO-Middle East Monitor     -     23 February 2013

israeli-bulldozerIsraeli occupation forces carried out on Thursday morning a limited invasion into the Khoza’a neighbourhood to the east of Khan Younis city.

According to eyewitnesses, several Israeli tanks accompanied by seven bulldozers penetrated about 300 metres deep into the Palestinian farms adjacent to the border in the area.

The bulldozers uprooted a number of trees and caused extensive damage to the Palestinian farms, particularly the wheat and barley crops. Sporadic shots were heard in the area, but no casualties were reported.

Local sources said that this invasion is the third in 24 hours. According to the sources, a similar number of Israeli tanks and bulldozers entered the same area yesterday morning with tanks and bulldozers. That coincided with an incursion into the eastern area of Jabalia city, north of the Gaza Strip. There, the Israelis also levelled Palestinian farms and uprooted a large number of trees.
