Witnesses: Israel military vehicles enter Gaza

Jan. 10, 2012 10:56 A.M. (Updated: Jan. 11, 2012 5:52 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli military vehicles entered the northern Gaza Strip on Tuesday morning, with witnesses reporting heavy gunfire in the area.

Forces accompanied bulldozers around 300 meters inside the border near Jabalia to raze lands in the area, witnesses told Ma'an. No casualties were reported.

An Israeli army spokesman said the incident was "routine activity."

Gunfire was also heard in the southern Gaza Strip early Tuesday, with locals saying Palestinian militants exchanged fire with an Israeli military post near the Kerem Shalom crossing.

The military spokesman said he was not familiar with the incident.
