Israeli military vehicles enter border area in south Gaza

May 1, 2013 11:49 A.M. (Updated: May 2, 2013 5:05 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli tanks and bulldozers entered a border area in the southern Gaza Strip on Wednesday, locals said.

Witnesses told Ma'an that seven Israeli military vehicles entered 200 meters into a border area near Khan Younis and destroyed agricultural land, including trees.

Border incursions are frequently reported by local residents.

Tensions are high in the Gaza Strip following an Israeli airstrike on Tuesday which killed Haitham al-Mishal, 25, in Gaza City. A medical official in Gaza said al-Mishal was a security guard at al-Shifa hospital, while Israel reported that he was a "a global Jihad-affiliated terrorist."

The al-Ansar Brigades says it fired five rockets at Israeli targets on Tuesday in response to the killing.
