Israeli military vehicles and bulldozers enter Gaza

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli tanks and bulldozers entered eastern Gaza City Wednesday as civil defense crews continued their search for the bodies of two people killed in an Israeli attack, locals said.

Witnesses told Ma'an that the vehicles entered the Zeitoun neighborhood of the city and that the bulldozers began digging up lands near the border with Israel.

A spokeswoman for the Israeli army said she was not aware of the incident.

On Friday, Hamas' military wing al-Qassam Brigades announced the death of three of its members by an Israeli airstrike.

One of the bodies was found Saturday.

The Israeli military said fighting erupted when an explosive device went off as troops were clearing a tunnel from the Gaza Strip into Israel, allegedly to be used as a springboard for militant attacks.

During the operation, Hamas targeted the Israeli soldiers with an explosive device, wounding five of them, it said in a statement.
