The IDF denied a Palestinian report early Thursday that Israeli forces had entered the southern Gaza Strip searching for smuggling tunnels. Palestinian security officials said the IDF troops had operated close to the border, and there were no clashes reported. But the army said Thursday morning that no troops were inside Gaza, where Israel has observed a truce with Palestinian factions for nearly three months.
