Al Qassam website –Gaza-  A number of Israeli tanks invaded farmlands of Palestinian farmers east of Al Bureij refugee camp in the central area of the Gaza Strip on Sunday, July 17th, 2011.

According to local sources two tanks and  three bulldozers crossed 300 meters over the border into agricultural land and east al-Bureij bulldozing farmlands and uprooting trees owned by local farmers.

Witnesses told the correspondent of “Al Qassam website” that tanks opened fire on nearby homes while bulldozers destroyed farmlands. Damage to homes was reported but there were no injuries.

Hamas MP Mushir Al-Masri held the Israeli occupation authority (IOA) fully responsible for consequences of its military escalation in Gaza and the West Bank that killed three Palestinians and wounded many others since the start of this month.

He said on Friday that the escalation reflected the IOA “criminal and terrorist mentality”.

Masri affirmed that the IOA crimes would not bring about security, adding that resistance would not remain silent for long and would not allow Gaza to be target of repeated strikes while the Israelis enjoyed stability and security.

He said that consultations among various national factions would determine the nature of the coming stage and developments on the field.
