Israeli troops briefly enter Strip near Gaza City, clash with Hamas fighters, killing one

Jan. 1, 2009 10:54 A.M. (Updated: Jan. 1, 2009 10:54 A.M.)
Gaza - Ma'an - One activist was killed as Israeli troops entered the Gaza Strip east of Gaza City, but retreated shortly after they clashed with Hamas' Al-Qassam Brigades.

The Hamas-wing reported that Israeli troops entered the Strip briefly in the early hours of Thursday morning. The Brigades exchanged fire with the troops, who seemed to retreat after the exchange.

Reports do not indicate that this invasion was part of the threatened Israeli ground invasion intot the Gaza Strip. Sources said the incursion was similar to those conducted before the airstrikes began, and occurred near the border wall.
