Israeli tanks and bulldozers have carried out an incursion into the city of Deir al-Balah in the central Gaza Strip, injuring a Palestinian during the attack.
Israeli bulldozers also destroyed on Sunday agricultural land in Deir al-Balah, located about 14 kilometers (8.5 miles) south of Gaza City.
The latest Israeli attack on Gaza was carried out on the same day when an illegal Israeli settler shot dead two Palestinians in the city of al-Khalil in the southern occupied West Bank.
Meanwhile, acting Palestinian Authority chief Mahmoud Abbas condemned the killing of the two Palestinians on Sunday.
Israel conducts attacks against the Gaza Strip on an almost regular basis.
Three Palestinians were injured in an Israeli airstrike on southern Gaza on June 1.
On March 30, Israeli troops shot dead a 20-year-old Palestinian in the city of Beit Hanoun in northern Gaza Strip on a day when thousands of pro-Palestinians had gathered in the occupied territory to mark the Palestinian Land Day.
In addition to airstrikes and ground attacks, the Tel Aviv regime also denies about 1.7 million people in Gaza their basic rights, including the freedom of movement and the right to decent living, work, health and education.
Israeli tanks and bulldozers destroyed Palestinian land in Gaza a few days after US President Barack Obama awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Israeli President Shimon Peres, the man who has overseen the killing of Palestinian women and children by Israeli forces in the occupied territories for decades.
Obama awarded the 88-year-old criminal the highest civilian honor in the United States during a dinner ceremony in the White House on June 13.
The US president said the “bonds” between the United States and Israel are “unbreakable” and “non-negotiable.”
