Israeli occupation forces (IOF) raided eastern Khan Younis, south of the Gaza Strip, at dawn Monday amidst random firing, local sources told the PIC.
They added that four IOF armored vehicles advanced tens of meters in citizens' land east of Khan Younis and bulldozed the land amidst indiscriminate firing with no casualties reported.
IOF warplanes had broken the sound barrier over the Gaza Strip on Sunday evening causing big noise and spreading panic especially in lines of children and women.
PIC reporter said that the act was sudden, noting that it followed intensive flight of reconnaissance planes.
Meanwhile, the reporter said that Israeli navy gunboats shelled and destroyed a Palestinian fishing boat off the central Gaza Strip coast.
The reporter, who was at scene of the incident, said that the boat was completely destroyed but no casualties were reported.
In the West Bank the IOF soldiers detained 11 Palestinian citizens at dawn Monday in the districts of Bethlehem, Al-Khalil, and Qalqilia.
