Israeli tanks and bulldozers have invaded the eastern border areas of the Gaza Strip, destroying cultivated agricultural Palestinian land.
Palestinian fighters retaliated by firing home-made shells at the invading forces. No injuries were reported from either side in the Thursday attack, the International Middle East Media Center (IMEMC) reported.
Also on Thursday, Israeli naval forces opened fire on Palestinian fishing boats off the coast of the strip, local sources reported.
Palestinian sources said that some boats sustained some damage but no injuries were reported. Last week, a similar attack by the Israeli naval forces left one Palestinian fisherman dead and another one injured.
The Gaza Strip has been under a crippling Israeli-imposed blockade for over two years. The strip was under siege even when it was under an all-out military onslaught by Tel Aviv at the turn of the year.
