 Israeli army vehicles and bulldozers on Tuesday staged a limited incursion into the southern Gaza Strip despite an August 26 cease-fire agreement signed with Palestinian resistance factions.

Five bulldozers from Israel's Kissufim military base pushed some 150 meters into the cities of Rafah and Khan Younis, according to eyewitnesses.

The bulldozers leveled a large tract of agricultural land before leaving the area, witnesses added.

There was no comment from the Israeli army.

On August 26, Israeli and Palestinian negotiators signed a cease-fire deal in Cairo, ending a seven-week Israeli military onslaught on the Gaza Strip.

The Israeli offensive, which began on July 7, left 2,160 Palestinians dead – the vast majority of them civilians – and more than 11,000 injured.
