Palestinian reports claim Israeli tanks, troops pushing into Kerem Shalom crossing

Palestinian news outlets say Israeli forces are pushing into the Kerem Shalom crossing, shelling the area from the air and with artillery fire.

Al-Aqsa TV reports that Israeli tanks are firing at the crossing from some 200 meters (650 feet) away, destroying the terminal which has served as one of the main conduits for aid into Gaza since November.

The crossing sits some 3 kilometers from the eastern edges of Rafah in the far south of Gaza.

Other reports claim that ground forces are moving into the crossing area and that air strikes are hitting eastern Rafah.

There is no comment from the Israeli military on the reported action.
