Witnesses: Journalists trapped under Israeli fire in south Gaza



GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- Israeli military vehicles opened fire on a border area in the southern Gaza Strip on Tuesday, trapping journalists at the scene, witnesses said.

Ten military vehicles crossed several hundred meters into Gaza, east of Khan Younis, firing towards houses and farmlands, residents said.

A crew of journalists took cover for over an hour during the fire on Khuzaa, they told Ma'an.

No injuries were reported, but locals said crops in the area were burned.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said she was looking into the incident.
