On Tuesday morning, a number of Israeli military vehicles invaded the eastern part of Khan Younis to the south of the Gaza Strip.

Witnesses from Khoza’a said that the Israeli vehicles, which were accompanied by drones, fired live ammunition at residential houses and farms in the area, but no causalities were reported.

According to eye witness accounts, two Israeli bulldozers began digging in the area and flattening the land to make a passage believed to be for the movement of military vehicles based behind Khoza’a school.

Israeli military vehicles entered Al-Fokhari neighbourhood in Khan Younis last week and did the same a couple of weeks ago at Al-Faraheen village.

Israeli operations inside Gaza’s borders are considered a breach of the agreement reach several weeks ago between Gazan fighters and Israel which brought an end to a wide scale offensive against the enclave.
