Israeli tanks have crossed the border into the Gaza Strip with helicopters and drones reportedly flying over the coastal area.
Citing Palestinian sources, Reuters reported that five Israeli tanks and two armored bulldozers entered into the Gaza Strip and started firing towards the central town of Khan Yunis on Friday.
According to the report, the Popular Resistance Committee confirmed one of its fighters was critically wounded by the tank shelling.

Fresh clashes erupted between Palestinians and Israeli forces earlier on Wednesday, leaving four people, two from each side, dead.
