Israeli military vehicles enter Gaza, 'fire shell'

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli military vehicles entered the central Gaza Strip early Monday, witnesses told Ma'an.

Locals said six bulldozers escorted by military vehicles and tanks drove about 150 meters into Gaza east of Deir al-Balah.

A tank fired a mortar shell towards a Palestinian neighborhood, but no injuries were reported, witnesses added.

Bulldozers leveled lands in the area before they returned to the Israeli side of the border.

An Israeli army spokeswoman could not immediately confirm the incident, and said she was not familiar with any mortar shells being fired in Gaza on Monday.

In a separate incident, she said the army prevented "a terror attack" in Gaza. more
