Hamas source: Israeli incursion near Khan Younis

Sept. 27, 2010 9:48 A.M. (Updated: Sept. 28, 2010 9:58 A.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Several Israeli military vehicles crossed the Gaza border near Al-Qarara in the southern district of Khan Younis on Monday, a Gaza government security source told Ma'an.

The source said three thanks, three bulldozers and a troop carrier entered Gaza through the Kissufim gate and began combing the area. "The invading troops opened fire toward Palestinian land and no injuries have been reported."

An Israeli military spokeswoman said she would look into the report, but did not return with a comment.

On Sunday, Israeli forces shot a Palestinian near Khan Younis at one of several peaceful anti-settlement protests held in Gaza as the rally approached the imposed buffer zone.

The injured was described as in critical condition after being shot as he tried to place a Palestinian flag on the border area, which Israel considers a live combat zone.
