GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli army vehicles entered the Gaza Strip early Wednesday as soldiers fired from military towers by the border, witnesses said.
Four bulldozers, three tanks and several other military vehicles were seen leveling farm land in the Juhor al-Dik and Maqbola neighborhoods near al-Bureij refugee camp, onlookers told Ma'an.
Meanwhile, several helicopters hovered in the area and soldiers stationed in army watchtowers fired gunshots, they added.
An Israeli military spokeswoman said the vehicles were "on routine activity" in the Gaza Strip.
