A United Nations sapper unit will enter Gaza on Wednesday in order to neutralize unexploded ordinance that remained following Operation Cast Lead.

IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi authorized the entry, the army said.

The team will enter Gaza through the Erez crossing under the coordination and authorization of the coordinator of government activities in the territories, Maj. Gen. Eitan Dangot.

The activity's main goal is to prevent harm to Gaza's residents, said the IDF.

The operation is scheduled to last a few months, during which explosions may be heard in the Gaza area.
