In the Gaza Strip city of Khan Younis, IPC correspondent said that Israeli occupation forces swept into the Qizan Alnajjar neighborhood, southeast of Khan Younis city, and that accompanying bulldozers, under heavy gun fire, began razing Palestinain-owned lands.

Abu Ahmad Alshae’r, a local inhabitant, said that the Israeli tanks have been over the past few days incurring frequently into their area, under a barrage of heavy shooting.

He added that the Israeli tanks advance usually from the nearby illegitimate Jewish settlement of Moraj, which is established on Palestinian-owned lands.

Local Palestinain sources confirmed that the Israeli incursions and razing of lands have so far destroyed more that 60 dunums of lands owned by the Almasry, Sha’ath and Alsha’r families.

The arrested civilians were identified as Ahmad Alsafadi, 30, Yousef Alsafadi,24, and his brother Amer. They all have been taken to unknown destination, the sources added.
