Witnesses: Israel performs Gaza incursion

Gaza - Ma’an - Residents near the Sufa border, southern Gaza, reported that an Israeli military incursion was undertaken late Wednesday night.

Witnesses said Israeli forces entered close to the border, opened artillery fire while F16 warplanes were sighted above the skies.

The forces were then seen moving towards the eastern Gaza border, and fired at agricultural land in Jabalia in the north, they added.

An Israeli spokesman said there was no military activity in the area at the time of the reports.
