GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- An Israeli tank on Saturday fired shells at an open area in Gaza City, locals said.

Witnesses told Ma'an that Israeli tanks were stationed along the border facing the city's Shujaiyya neighborhood, and that one fired a shell into a Palestinian field.

No injuries were reported.

An Israeli army spokeswoman told Ma'an that no such event occurred.

On Friday, 13 people were injured by Israeli gunfire and four by tear gas while protesting, Gaza's emergency services chief Ashraf al-Qidra told AFP.

So, what could possibly hold the line and calm, even immobilise so consistently volatile and long-standing a confrontation? Can sufficient downtime ever be provided so that this entire dispute might then be settled in a much more civilised and transparent a manner? www.laxiankey.com Just imagine that there will never be another method that can do this. And, judging by what poor results have emerged after very nearly seven decades of conflict, trial and error, this might very well be the case.

First para. it's ''shells'', and second para it's ''shell''. I am with the IDF if you are unable to state clearly the quantity correctly.

A shot off the bow , just to remind Gazans that the IDF is still powerful and in control of their movement and life. Gazans are past the afraid stage.

Anybody who has ever done military service in an armoured brigade knows that tank crews simply don't open fire by themselves, nor do they generally waste rounds on a whim. The Palestinians are known to make up stories.

@4 - Brain Cohen by your statement I assume you have done military service in an armoured brigade, or are you making up stories too?
