GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Several Israeli army bulldozers and vehicles entered the border area in the southern Gaza Strip on Tuesday morning, locals said.

Locals said four bulldozers entered the Gaza border area from the Kissufim military site near al-Qarara, northeast of Khan Younis.

The bulldozers drove into Palestinian fields but gunshots were not heard in the area.

Residents said local farmers often fear they are at risk of being hit by stray bullets.

The Israeli army operates a no-go zone between the border, which mostly encompasses agricultural land. The army regularly enters the area for it calls "routine" activity.

According to the Palestinian Center for Human Rights, approximately 27,000 dunums of land can only be accessed under high personal risk, as Israeli attacks may result in injury or death of civilians.

Approximately 30% of Gaza's agricultural land cannot be worked without severe personal risk, causing the loss of livelihoods.

In 2010, 14 Palestinians were killed in the buffer zone and 50 were injured, the PCHR reports.

We don't wonder @1. That is what Islamists do - ban alcohol, ban interest, chop hands, shoot rockets. That is all they can do. Like a dog barking and biting. You don't wonder why a dog does those things - that is what they do.

Israeli1 needs to read the above article again. It's Israelis ravaging the Gaza Strip, leveling the farmlands, not Islamists.
