Witnesses: Israeli army vehicles breach Gaza border

GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- Witnesses said Israeli military vehicles crossed the border into the Gaza Strip near Khan Younis on Monday morning.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said forces were carrying out "routine activity" in the area.

Eyewitnesses told Ma'an the vehicles came several hundred meters into Gaza territory and were scanning the area.

Israel's recent 8-day war on Gaza ended with a ceasefire on Nov. 21, which included a pledge to end incursions into Gaza's territory.

Israel has imposed a 500-meter no-go zone on the borders, but as part of the ceasefire agreed to stop targeting Palestinians in the area, Gaza's government said.

When a Palestinian was killed in the zone by Israeli forces a few days after the ceasefire, Hamas security forces deployed in the area to make sure Palestinians don't approach the border fence.

Here's an idea. Why not put the "no-go zone" in Israel? Then they could carry out all the "routine activity" they liked...in Israel. Or what about half in Israel; half in Gaza? That'd be "fair". Sort of. But of course it's academic, a parlour game disconnected from reality. Because the reality is that Israel is an eccentric entity which does whatever it likes, refuses to honour agreements or respect laws, lies constantly, has no moral code beyond survival, definitely no shame and doggedly

of course! it's "routine activity" for izrahell to violate the ceasefire, breach Gaza's borders, and murder innocent Pals.

If Hamas would stop putting civilians in the way like they did the other day, Israel would not have to harm innocent civilians. My friend received warning in an apartment complex he lived in. Hamas used it as a base. He had plenty of warning, but didnt heed right away. However at last minute he decided to heed it. He got his family out in the nick of time. He thanks the IDF for warning him, although he is distraught about the loss of his home. He knows Hamas is to blame.

Israel has breached the ceasefire both in Gaza and the West Bank numerous times since the ceasefire agreement. Yet, unfortunately, if the PA or Hamas security forces respond, it will be called terrorism and will be portrayed as such. I'm glad the PA police stood up to the soldiers. Hamas security should be deployed to Gaza borders on a routine basis to defend the Gaza territory- just to have a visible presence.

I've reached the point where I'm no longer outraged. Getting upset about Israel lying and killing is like getting upset about a dog chasing cats. It's just what Israel is. Thing to do, is to put Israel to sleep of course. She's not a pleasant pet, and the children don't love her, so no reason to keep her. Find her a good home? Anyone want eight million racial supremacist Nazis?

Colin: Maybe when Hamas is willing to stop vowing to destroy Israel, Israel will be able to sit down and talk rather than fight back to defend those of us who live on the border, from rockets and infiltrators who wish to slaughter us in our homes.

Other reports say the bulldozers destroyed Gaza farmland. Another step in the policy of de-Arabising the whole of Palestine for Israeli greed. It's the usual round of Israeli atrocities for land-grabbing, just like a previous occupation. Except in that one, those who opposed it were called "heroes of the Resistance". And they are now, too. Israel must end the occupation and learn to live in peace with its neighbours, or it will continue to be despised.

#8 "Maybe when Hamas is willing to stop vowing to destroy Israel..." You might believe that Adele or have been told that's what Hamas wants and I'm sure it's stressful living "on the border" (though NOTHING like being in Gaza obviously)...but Khaled Meshaal's formal offer to your government is this: "a Palestinian state in the 1967 lines with Jerusalem as its capital, without any settlements or settlers, not an inch of land swaps and respecting the right of return." That's not the same as

(contd.) "vowing to destroy Israel" is it? Or wanting to "slaughter us in our homes". In fact it's a genuine, generous offer: Israel gets away with massive land theft in the post-Colonial era. What's not to like? It's based on law and morality. Your fear and uncertainty is wholly the result of the stubborn refusal of your pig-headed government to even acknowledge an offer has been made. If I was you I'd vote them out in January.
