Israeli army tanks have opened fire on houses and farmlands in the northern sector of the Gaza Strip, according to a report.
A number of Israeli tanks attacked lands located near Beit Hannon and commenced firing on Tuesday midday at Palestinian farmers near the northern Gaza-Israeli border.
Bulldozers also destroyed the crops of the locals, according to the International Middle East Media Center (IMEMC).
The area where the gunfire was reported lies approximately 800 meters from the Green Line in the farming region of Abu Sufiyah, according to local Palestinian sources.
The farmers said that a number of homes and lands sustained damage but reported no injuries.
The Israeli army launched a massive military offensive, known as ‘Operation Cast Lead’ against the Gaza Strip from December 2008 to January 2009. Over 1,400 Palestinians were killed during the three-week offensive, which inflicted $1.6 billion in damage on the Gaza economy.
