Israeli Buffer Zone State Terror


Israel shoots nonviolent Gazan civilians on their own land, including children.

by Stephen Lendman

State terror is official Israeli policy. It's imposed numerous ways to enforce harshness too extreme to bear. The strategy hopes many Palestinians will give up and leave. 

Israel repeatedly gets it wrong. After decades of extreme oppression, Palestinians are committed to resist until free, though doing it extracts a huge toll.

Under protracted siege, Gazans suffer most of all, including by Israel's imposed Buffer Zone. It's a no-go "access-restricted" free-fire area, extending from Israel's border fence well into Gaza's most arable land. 

Palestinians entering it risk being shot, killed, or injured, including children. Moreover, IDF armored columns enter often to raze land and bulldoze homes and other structures. 

In May 2009, Israel dropped leaflets warning Gazans to keep out of areas within 300 meters of the border fence or risk being shot. In fact, Israeli snipers shoot them up to two kilometers inside. Moreover, Palestinian crops and structures have been destroyed well beyond the 300 meter limit.
