Limited Israeli incursion in northern Gaza

Nov. 30, 2010 1:59 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 1, 2010 11:13 A.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- Palestinian activists in Gaza canceled a weekly demonstration near the Green Line when Israeli tanks and military bulldozers entered the area.

Witnesses said five tanks and two bulldozers entered the Gaza Strip north of the town of Beit Hanoun. No gunfire was reported.

The reported incursion occurred in the area where the Beit Hanoun Local Initiative planed a demonstration against Israeli occupation.

On Monday activists said Israeli forces opened fire on a peaceful march in in the same area. The demonstration was dispersed, but no injuries were reported from the shooting.

The northern Gaza border and the nearly 300-1,000 meter wide "no-go-zone" imposed by Israeli forces which actively patrol the area has been an area of violence in recent days, with 12 workers collecting stone aggregates in the area shot by Israeli forces in the preceding 48 hours.

Earlier Tuesday, five workers were shot and evacuated to hospital.
