Israeli forces enter Gaza in north and south, igniting clashes with NRB, Al-Qassam

Nov. 8, 2008 9:30 A.M. (Updated: Nov. 8, 2008 9:30 A.M.)
Gaza - Ma'an - Israeli military vehicles and bulldozers entered Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip and began bulldozing lands in the area, eyewitnesses told Ma'an on Saturday morning.

Palestinian resistance factions say they tried to block the invading forces and impede their progress deeper into the Palestinian territory.

Hamas' Al-Qassam Brigades reported having fired at and hit an Israeli soldier while he was on top of a military vehicle advancing into the area.

According to Israeli media forces entered Gaza to "neutralize two explosive devices," and the Israeli military deny that any shots were fired.

In the north of Gaza more incursions

At dawn on Saturday Israeli forces entered Gaza near the Erez crossing. The act sparked clashes between Israeli forces and the National Resistance Brigades (NRB), the military wing affiliated to the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP).

The NRB affirmed its readiness to continue such responses to the presence of Israeli forces in the Gaza Strip.
