Israeli Tanks Roll into Gaza Strip

Israeli tanks have attacked Palestinian refugee camp of al-Buraij in their second invasion of the Gaza Strip in the past 24 hours.

The Israeli military claimed Monday that the attack was in retaliation for mortar attacks by Hamas fighters on southern Israel.

There have been no immediate reports of casualties, a Press TV correspondent reported.

The raid came after an Israeli tank on Sunday killed three people in the town of Beit Hanoun.

The Israeli violation of the coastal enclave comes after the Palestinian Authority engaged in direct talks with Tel Aviv.

The incursion is in violation of a Palestinian demand for Israel’s complete withdrawal behind the borders of 1967, when it captured Gaza, the West Bank and East al-Quds (Jerusalem).

Gaza is still far from recovering from the Israeli war at the turn of 2009, which killed more than 1,400 Palestinians, most of them civilians.
