IMEMC & Agencies:  A number of Israeli military vehicles invaded on Thursday evening the Eastern Graveyard Area, east of Jabalia, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip, and clashed with resistance fighters who targeted a vehicle with a shell.

Eyewitnesses said one soldier was injured during the invasion, and that a military helicopter landed in the area apparently to move the wounded soldier to hospital.

They added that the army fired dozens of rounds of live ammunition at local homes, and farmlands in the area, and that the soldiers also fired one artillery shell; damage was reported, no injuries.

Soldiers frequently conduct limited military invasions into areas close to the border in the besieged and impoverished coastal region.

On Thursday morning, several armored Israeli military vehicles invaded Palestinian farmland east of the al-Qarara town, northeast of Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, uprooted and bulldozed the invaded lands, and opened fire at nearby homes and structures.

The Israeli military attacks include frequent targeting of Palestinian fishermen and their boats in Palestinian territorial waters leading to dozens of casualties and arrests.
