Israeli Bulldozers Raze Lands in Southern Gaza

Israeli Bulldozers Raze Lands in Southern Gaza”

Gazans are calling for mass marches toward a border fence that seals off the coastal territory from Israel.

Organizers said Thursday that the "Great March of Return" on March 30-May 15 near the borders between eastern Gaza Strip and Israel will be peaceful and non-violent.

The three men were arrested Tuesday near the Tzeelim army base, which is located about 12 miles from the Gaza border.

The spokesman was responding to Israeli army officials and media reports warning that the march near the borders for one month and a half might be risky and lead to bloody confrontations with Israel.

GAZA CITY, Palestinian Territories: An Israeli tank struck two Hamas positions in the Gaza Strip late Sunday after bullets were fired from the Palestinian enclave, the Israeli army said.

A Palestinian woman warms herself by a fire inside her house on a winter day, in the northern Gaza Strip January 31, 2018. "From my point of view, if bus companies you own take some of the protestors and bring them to the border, you and your families will be held personally responsible", Mordechai declared.

A Hamas military exercise set off Code Red alerts in southern Israeli communities and caused the Iron Dome anti-missile system to misfire.

"A big portion of the army will be invested there", Eisenkot told the rival Yedioth Ahronoth daily on the same day, adding that more than a hundred snipers, most from "special units", had been stationed in the area.

Perhaps the most worrying harbinger of what may play out this weekend in Gaza, however, is the way the IDF responded to a series of similar "return marches" on Israel's borders in 2011.

Land Day commemorates the 1976 events in which six Arabs were killed by Israeli forces.

IDF Chief of General Staff Lt. Gen. Gadi Eisenkott authorized the use of live fire if Israeli lives are in danger, the Times of Israel reported.

"Hamas is running into the arms of Iran and exploiting civilians by sending them to the (security fence that divides Gaza and Israel)", he said.

The Palestinian leadership cut ties with the administration of President Donald Trump after he announced the move.
