BEIT HANOUN, (PIC)-- Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) advanced on Monday morning into northern Gaza Strip and bulldozed Palestinian lands.

Eyewitnesses confirmed that several Israeli bulldozers and military vehicles advanced to the east of Beit Hanoun town, northern Gaza Strip, where they conducted bulldozing operations in the area.

The Israeli incursion coincided with intensive over flights by reconnaissance planes and heavy gunfire, the sources added.

A Palestinian farmer was seriously injured earlier Monday after IOF soldiers opened fire at him east of Deir al-Balah in central Gaza Strip.
