Palestinian news agency Maan reported that two Egyptian tanks crossed the Egyptian border with the Gaza Strip for the first time on Thursday night, but did not reach the Palestinian border.
Witnesses said that the two tanks were moving along the road in front of the concrete wall Egyptian authorities had erected on the border with the Gaza Strip several years ago. They said that masked Egyptian soldiers drove the two tanks without entering Palestinian territory. According to the report, they were accompanied by a civilian vehicle. (Roi Kais)
