Gaza - Ma'an - Several Israeli military vehicles conducted a limited incursion in the Ash-Shuka area in Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip amidst heavy gunfire and artillery shelling on Thursday. No casualties have been reported.

Eyewitnesses told Ma'an that Palestinian resistance groups confronted the invading forces, firing several mortar shells.

Meanwhile, Israeli forces stationed near the Yasser Arafat International airport in Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip opened fire on the nearby Ash-Shuka school on Thursday morning.

Eyewitnesses told Ma'an's reporter that all students and faculty were detained in the school yard.

Separately, the military wing of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP), the National resistance Brigades, and Fatah's Al-Aqsa Brigades claimed responsibility for launching two rocket-propelled grenades at two Israeli military jeeps in Al-Maghazi refuge camp in the central Gaza Strip.

They said the shelling came in retaliation for the ongoing Israeli aggression against the Palestinian people.
