The army published a clarification saying there were "no soldiers" in Gaza.


The Israeli army clarified early Friday that its troops had not entered the Gaza Strip as it had earlier stated, blaming an “internal communication” problem for the confusion.

Just after midnight, the army sent a message to the media saying troops were in the Gaza Strip, and this was confirmed to AFP by the army’s spokesperson. But two hours later, the army published a clarification saying there were “no soldiers” in Gaza.
