About 30 IDF tanks and bulldozers moved into the southern Gaza Strip around dawn on Tuesday, with soldiers taking over the rooftops of several homes and conducting house-to-house searches, said residents and security forces affiliated with the territory's ruling Hamas group. The military had no immediate information on the report. The tanks and bulldozers were approaching the main road between the towns of Khan Younis and Rafah, about one kilometer deep inside the Palestinian-controlled area, and at one section were destroying a gas station. But there were no clashes reported in the area, which is open and provides no cover for Palestinian fighters to hide .
