IOF troops demolish two houses, bulldoze agriculture lands

IOF troops on Wednesday demolished two Palestinian homes and bulldozed 100 dunums of agriculture lands in Qarara town east of Khan Younis, to the south of the Gaza Strip, locals reported.


They told PIC correspondent that the lands were cultivated with olive trees and vegetables, and added that the soldiers were still firing indiscriminately at citizens this afternoon.


In the West Bank, Hebrew media reported that IOF soldiers rounded up 13 Palestinians in various areas including the commander of the Qassam Brigades in Tulkarm.


Meanwhile, IOF command on Wednesday dismantled the Mintad outpost east of Qarara which has been repeatedly attacked by Palestinian resistance in Gaza especially the Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas.


Witnesses reported that Zionist tractors were seen removing the outpost amidst feeling of satisfaction among the nearby Palestinian residents who suffered a lot from shelling and random firing from this position that killed a number of inhabitants.
