An Israeli army bulldozer last Thursday, crushed a Palestinian teen to death during a military incursion, while Gazans are stockpiling supplies fearing a major Israeli offensive.

Mohmud Al-Sakafi, 16, died after being run over by an Israeli bulldozer, witnesses told IOL.

They said the bulldozer lurched toward the young Palestinian during an incursion into eastern Bureij refugee camp in central Gaza.

More than 35 Israeli armours, backed by Apache helicopters and bulldozers, swept into the area early Thursday.

Medics said Israeli soldiers launched a house-to-house search for Palestinian fighters and weapons while bulldozers scooped up farmland in the area.

Four Palestinians, including two Hamas fighters, were injured by Israeli gunfire during the operation, said medics.

The two fighters, one seriously wounded, were injured by helicopter fire.

Israeli soldiers also opened fire at residents trying to aid an injured Palestinian in the area, said sources.

Thursday’s death brings to 5,866 the reported number of people killed since the start of Al-Aqsa Intifada in September 2000, the vast majority of them Palestinians.
