GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli army vehicles entered the Gaza Strip early Wednesday as soldiers fired from military towers by the border, witnesses said.

Four bulldozers, three tanks and several other military vehicles were seen leveling farm land in the Juhor al-Dik and Maqbola neighborhoods near al-Bureij refugee camp, onlookers told Ma'an.

Meanwhile, several helicopters hovered in the area and soldiers stationed in army watchtowers fired gunshots, they added.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said the vehicles were "on routine activity" in the Gaza Strip.

‘Routine activity’? In total violation of Gaza sovereignty? This gives the term ‘illegal incursion’ a whole new vocabulary!

It'd be funny if the US network news just reported all this stuff without comment. American support for Israel would evaporate in about a month.

Routine? Running over farmland of a DP camp? The Izzy 'Jawan Jewweed' strikes again? Panzers are 'vehicles'? IDFers fired from 'guard towers'? As the old song says, "If I had a rocket launcher"...Aaron Allen...

#5: all IDF activity in Gaza is 300 meters from the border (the range of an AK47 - so no militant can just go and shoot his rifle to Israeli side)! how much farmland is there in thees 300 meters under of battle field anyway? grow your stuff 301 meters from the fence and it will be spared! (or just disarm!)
