Witnesses: Journalists trapped under Israeli fire in south Gaza

GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- Israeli military vehicles opened fire on a border area in the southern Gaza Strip on Tuesday, trapping journalists at the scene, witnesses said.

Ten military vehicles crossed several hundred meters into Gaza, east of Khan Younis, firing towards houses and farmlands, residents said.

A crew of journalists took cover for over an hour during the fire on Khuzaa, they told Ma'an.

No injuries were reported, but locals said crops in the area were burned.

The Israeli military said in a statement that Palestinian militants opened fire at Israeli soldiers who were "performing routine operational activities" near the border.

Two army vehicles were damaged, the military said.

Soldiers and Israeli aircraft returned fire "towards suspicious locations," the army said.
