    [Tuesday Morning, September 24, 2013] A number of armored Israeli
    military vehicles, and a military bulldozer, invaded an area east of
    the Al-Boreij refugee camp, in central Gaza, and clashed with
    Palestinian fighters.

Eyewitnesses said that the fighters managed to detonate an explosive 
charge under the military bulldozer, and that fire and smoke was seen 
coming out of the targeted vehicle.

Soldiers fired dozens of rounds of live ammunition and used smokescreens 
in an attempt to conceal the movement of their vehicles, and advanced to 
uproot farmlands in the area.

Also on Tuesday, several Israeli military vehicles carried out a limited 
invasion into an area, east of Deir Al-Balah, in central Gaza, and 
uprooted Palestinian lands.

Media sources said that six Israeli military vehicles and bulldozers 
advanced nearly 150 meters and uprooted lands in the area.

Israeli soldiers conduct frequent military invasions into different 
areas in the besieged coastal region, and uproot farmlands, in addition 
to opening fire at farmers working in their lands close to the border area.

The invasions, that also led to dozens of casualties, are accompanied by 
repeated assaults targeting Palestinian fishermen in Palestinian 
territorial waters, leading to several arrests and dozens of casualties.

The invasions come in direct violation of the ceasefire agreement that 
was mediated by Egypt in November of last year.

During the 8-day war in November of last year, Israeli missiles and 
shells killed 191 Palestinians, mainly children, women and elderly, 
while at least 1492 Palestinians have been injured, dozens seriously.

Israeli shells killed 12 women, 20 elderly, and 48 children, including 
16 under the age of five during the war.

Israeli fire and shells have also injured 1492 Palestinians, including 
533 children (195 under the age of 5), 254 women and 103 elderly.

Following the ceasefire agreement, the army continued its violations 
against farmers and workers in areas close to the border, and against 
fishermen in Palestinian territorial water; dozens of casualties and 
arrests have been reported.

On December 27 2008, Israel launched the Operation Cast Lead war on 
Gaza, a war that was described by the Palestinian Center for Human 
Rights (PCHR) as the "single most brutal even in the history of the 
Israeli occupation".

"In total, 1,419 Palestinians were killed. 83% of the dead -- the 
overwhelming majority -- were civilians, the so-called 'protected 
persons' of international humanitarian law", PCHR said in its reported, 
"A further 5,300 were injured, and public and private property 
throughout the Gaza Strip was extensively targeted and destroyed."
