Army Infiltrates Gaza Borders, Orders Jordan Valley Families Out of Homes

by Chris Carlson – International Middle East Media Center Editorial Group

Israeli army vehicles, Thursday, infiltrated Gaza borders and went nearly 200 meters into the eastern part of Rafah, south of Gaza, according to media sources.

Sources said that seven military vehicles, including three bulldozers and four tanks, entered the borders to the east of Rafah and razed an agricultural area amid gunfire.

No arrests or injuries were reported.

WAFA notes that Israeli forces infiltrate Gaza borders almost on a daily basis.

Also on Thursday, Israeli forces served 20 families in the Jordan Valley with notices to evacuate their structures in order to conduct military trainings there, according to local sources.

Local residents told WAFA that the Israeli forces invaded the area of Wad Ibzeeq, in the northern Jordan Valley, and handed 20 families notices to evacuate their homes for a number of hours, under the pretext of conducting military exercises in the area.

To be noted, Israeli army has repeatedly forced inhabitants of the area out of their homes for military exercises, as Israel plans to illegally and unilaterally annex the Jordan Valley in any future deal with the Palestinians.
