Gaza – Ma’an – A Palestinian armed group said that it shelled Israeli military vehicles on Palestinian territory in the Gaza Strip on Wednesday morning.

The An-Nasser Salah Ad-Din Brigades, the armed wing of the Popular Resistance Committees, said that it fired three mortar shells at Israeli vehicles near the Kerem Shalom crossing point, in southern Gaza Strip.

An Israeli military spokesperson confirmed that three mortar shells landed in Palestinian territory in the area. No damage or injuries were reported.

Residents of the area told Ma’an that Israeli forces entered 600 meters from the Green Line border toward the city of Rafah, and there is fear that the forces could proceed farther toward populated areas.

The Israeli military offered no comment on whether its forces were operating in the area.
