Gaza, ALRAY - Four Israeli artillery vehicles crossed on Friday evening briefly into the Shuhada Cemetery lying east of Jabalya in northern Gaza Strip.

ALRAY reporter in northern Gaza Strip said “four vehicles moved 150 meters into the bordering cemetery amid heavy flying of helicopters over Sodaniya district in Beit Hanon town,”

Israeli forces stationed north of beit Lahia town earlier on Friday fired towards Palestinian land and homes in Abu Samra border area. No injuries were reported.

In a related vein, medics said two Palestinians were injured in an Israeli firing while rallying near the border under “Intifada Youth Coalition” weekly demonstrations, while scores suffered tear gas inhalation.

The rallying activists managed to fix Palestine flags on the border fence and plant 70 olive trees on the buffer zone land, after being showered with Israeli live bullets tear gas bombs, our reporter said. 

He added that the occupation forces removed the flags after the demonstration went off.

The participants voiced their objection to the measures being mounted against Palestinian farmers in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank by the Israeli occupation which flouts international laws and conventions regarding occupying power’s obligation to protect civilians and afford them their right to exploit their natural resources.

They demanded for lifting the unjust blockade of farmers in the West Bank and Gaza and curbing Israel from land grab in light of Arab’s internal problems.

Israel has been testing the Gaza waters by launching airstrikes on military sites of Palestinian resistance movements, inflicting injuries only among civilians.

On Thursday, Israeli warplanes raided on three uninhabited sites in Gaza City and Central Gaza Strip, mildly injuring a woman and four of her children.

While Israeli military recently threatened with an escalation if rockets from Gaza didn’t stop; however, the Palestinian government in Gaza says Israel is using the rockets as pretext to justify its targeting of unarmed people.

Hamas says that it’s committed to the Egypt-mediated ceasefire agreement with Israel , signed in the wake of Israel’s November 2012 offensive in Gaza and that the recent projections of rockets are individual acts arising out of the suffocating Israeli and Egyptian blockade.
