The Israeli army on Friday opened floodgates near the eastern borders of Gaza Strip for the second day running flooding hundreds of dunums (124 acres) of Palestinian cultivated land lots.

Local sources said that the water devastated vast tracts of land in eastern Gaza City while dozens of other cultivated lands were flooded near Beit Hanun in northern Gaza Strip.

The farmers incurred heavy losses as a result of the devastating floods.

The Israeli army each winter opens the floodgates on Gaza borders and causes heavy losses to the farmers.
