Posted in Miscellaneous by beyondtheborder on March 23, 2009

“Israeli gunships shelled the Al-Mawassi area in western Khan Younis on Monday, while an Israeli Special Forces unit invaded the eastern area of the Gaza Strip city.

In a telephone call to Ma’an, a spokesperson for the Israeli military denied such an operation took place.

But eyewitnesses told Ma’an that Israeli ships opened fire at houses in the Al-Mawassi coastal area in western Khan Younis. No injuries were immediately reported.

Meanwhile, explosions were heard in the Al-Farahin area in the east of the city, when an Israeli unit attempted to invade the area, residents said. Palestinian fighters reportedly clashed with soldiers in the area.”
