IOF troops destroy agriculture sector in Gaza; kill Palestinian farmers


Bulldozer &ndash Gaza.

From the American Heritage Dictionary.

terrorism n. The unlawful use or threatened use of force or violence by a person or an organized group against people or property with the intention of intimidating or coercing societies or governments, often for ideological or political reasons.

The dictionary forgot to add: Does not apply to US allies, in particular the state of Israel.

This certainly qualifies under that definition in my mind's eye.
The agriculture ministry in the PA legitimate government in Gaza Strip asserted on Wednesday that the IOF [Israeli Occupational Forces] troops had bulldozed vast agricultural areas in the eastern sector of the Gaza Strip which is considered the food basket of the 1.5 million Palestinians living there.

According to a report issued by the ministry and a copy of which was obtained by the PIC [Palestinian Information Center], the Israeli occupation army uprooted fruitful trees and destroyed greenhouses and artisan wells in Shokeh and Sofa villages, east of Khan Younis city over the past week in addition to ruining poultry farms estimated at 1.5 million dollars.

The report, furthermore, added that Palestinian farmers in Qarara and Al-Buraij areas, east of Deir Al-Balah city, weren't able to reach and cultivate their farms for fear that the IOF troops stationed opposite to their farms could shoot and kill them "in cold blood" any time.

Palestinian farmer Ali Al-Dahdouh, 32, was killed with IOF bullets while cultivating his farm in Juhr Al-Deik area, east of the tiny Strip, a couple of days ago.
