GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- Israeli army vehicles crossed over the border of eastern Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip early Thursday, firing intensively, local residents said.

Onlookers of the brief incursion told Ma'an that seven Israeli tanks in addition to several bulldozers crossed a few dozen meters inside eastern Khan Younis near the Khuzaa, Abasan and Farahin towns.

In addition to the presence of helicopters overhead, gunfire from a military tower at the center of the border fence was overheard particularly in the town of Abasan. No injuries were reported.

Israel's army did not immediately return calls.
