Brigade: Clashes after bulldozers enter south Gaza

Aug. 30, 2010 8:57 A.M. (Updated: Aug. 30, 2010 10:24 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The Fatah-affiliated Al-Aqsa Brigades said violent clashes followed an Israeli military incursion east of Rafah, southern Gaza, overnight Sunday.

Abdul Muntaser Omar said the force was attempting to bulldoze land in the An-Nahda neighborhood. Brigade members and Israeli forces exchanged fire, forcing the troops to retreat, he added.

The brigade leader further said Israeli forces used machine guns during the exchange of fire, with no reports of injuries.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said the army was not familiar with the incident.

Meanwhile, Israeli media reported Monday that a mortar shell from Gaza exploded in an open field in southern Israel with no injuries or damage reported.
