    Hamas sources and medical workers told the Reuters news agency that Israeli ground troops had crossed into Gaza during the incident, prompting and exchange of gunfire.

    The Israeli military denied that there had been any shooting on Saturday.

    It was not immeditaely clear if the two incidents were related.
