Gaza – Ma'an – Israeli forces reportedly entered close to the buffer zone southeast of Gaza, entering nearly 500 meters near Khan Younis, according to locals.

The force, which sources said was comprised of three Israeli tanks and four military bulldozers, reportedly opened fire at residents' homes, with no injuries reported.

Locals further said land was bulldozed in the Qarara village east of Khan Younis.

An Israeli military spokesman told Ma'an that army is not familiar with the incident, nor with reports that Israeli forces opened fire toward buildings. The representative added that the area in question along the Gaza-Israel border is considered a combat zone, with militants using the area on several occasions to plant explosives.
