Khan Younis, Gaza Strip - On January 7, 2016, a low-flying agricultural aircraft sprayed herbicides on to Palestinian farmlands along the eastern border, eradicating or damaging up to 162 hectares of crops and farmland along the Israeli border fence. The sprayed areas belong to Israel's unilaterally imposed and poorly delineated "buffer" or "no-go zone".
