Palestinian resistance fighters in the Gaza Strip have clashed with Israeli forces upon a fresh incursion into the north of the Palestinian coastal enclave.
The confrontation occurred on Wednesday when a number of Israeli armored vehicles and bulldozers briefly crossed into an area east of al-Shujaiyeh, Ma’an news agency quoted witnesses as saying.
They said Israeli artillery also shelled the area, which is close to the now defunct Nahal Oz fuel pipeline along the Gaza-Israel border.
The statement said the Israeli attack was a further proof of Israeli aggression towards the Palestinians and highlighted the significance of resistance against Israel’s violations.
An Israeli military spokesman said he would look into the report.
