Three Incursions Into Eastern, Central & Southern Gaza Strip

3 Incursions Into Eastern, Central And Southern Gaza Strip

Gaza-Interior Ministry
9/4/2012

Israeli troops have entered three separate areas in the east, south and central Gaza Strip, in 28 army bulldozers.

Local sources saidthat 4 Israeli tanks accompanied by 6 military bulldozers penetrated out of the"Abu Rida." gate, east of the Khuza'a town east of Khan Younis and started bulldozing operations in the agricultural land in that region.

Witnesses saidthat the occupation forces fired artillery shells towards the open land east of Al-Qarara town, as a heavy gunfire amid a low-flying reconnaissance aircraft.

The same sources added that three tanks and four bulldozers entered east Al-Nahda neighborhood in Rafah, and combed the area, coinciding with a similar incursion east of Bureij in the central Gaza Strip, where seven bulldozers and four tanks entered with heavy shooting from the military watchtower known as the "camera."
