GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli military vehicles crossed into the Gaza Strip late Thursday in a limited incursion, witnesses said.

Israeli tanks and bulldozers crossed into territory east of Rafah and aircraft fired nearby, the witnesses reported.

An Israeli military spokeswomen said Israeli forces fired at open areas in the southern Gaza Strip "in order to thwart terror activity."

There were no reports of injury or damage, the official told Ma'an.

Israeli media reported that three rockets were fired from Gaza.
