Limited incursion into south Gaza reported

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces carried out a limited incursion into the southern Gaza Strip on Thursday evening, onlookers said.

There were no reports of injury or damage.

Two tanks and a bulldozer drove 200 meters east of Rafah, where they bulldozed land while combing the area, witnesses said.

Also, the armed wing of the Popular Resistance Committees said its Salah Ad-Din Brigades fired six mortar shells at an invading force in the same area.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said the army was unaware of either reported incident.
