Israeli Occupation Forces have begun bulldozing agricultural crops in the north of the Gaza Strip just shortly before they were due to be harvested by farmers.
Farmers and eyewitnesses told Quds Press that just as farmers were preparing to harvest their annual wheat and barley crop near the border in the north of the Gaza Strip, Israeli forces brought in machinery and bulldozed the crops.

Eyewitnesses added that the bulldozing continued for days and a depth of 500 meters of private farm land to the East of the town of Jabalya was cleared. They also added that this was an annual occurrence.
