Israel Sends Tanks Back to Karni Crossing After Truce Pullout
The Israeli army returned their tanks to the flashpoint Karni crossing in the Gaza Strip on Friday after pulling them out only a day before under a cease-fire agreement reached between Israel and the Palestinians, according to eyewitness reports by an AFP correspondent.
Two tanks and several armored jeeps re-entered the crossing point between Israel and the Gaza Strip after clashes between Israeli soldiers and Palestinians.
