Israeli soldiers driving, armored vehicles and armored bulldozers, invaded on Thursday an area east of the Gaza Strip and demolished Palestinian factories in the industrial zone near the Al Mintar(Karni) Crossing.

After bulldozing the Palestinian factories, the army continue to bulldoze and uproot agricultural lands, and also destroyed electricity transformer stations.

Local sources reported that the soldiers also opened fire indiscriminately at nearby residential areas; damage was reported, no injuries.

The Al Mintar Crossing was closed by an Israeli army order issued a few months ago, and the only trade crossing that remained open, partially in many cases, is the Kerem Shalom (Karem Abu Salem) Crossing.

On its own, the Karem Shalom Crossing is not adequate enough to allow the passage of all supplies and materials urgently needed in the coastal region.

Also on Thursday, soldiers opened fire at Palestinian farmers in northern Gaza and wounded one farmer.

The 45-year-old farmer suffered moderate wounds in his abdomen, and was
moved to a local hospital for treatment. The farmer was working in his land, north of Beit Lahia.
