Gazans on social media are saying they can hear machine gun fire near Gaza City in the northern part of the Strip.
It is not immediately clear if the reported gunfire means IDF troops are operating on the ground in the Strip.
In north Gaza now it's literally a battle. Multiple shots with different calibers, drones, naval shelling and F16 in the background!
