GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) -- Palestinian and Israeli officials say troops and Gaza militants are clashing along the Gaza border in first such battle since a June truce.
The army says its forces uncovered a tunnel just inside the Gaza Strip meant to abduct Israeli soldiers and has dispatched a special unit to thwart the threat. The army stresses it is not violating the truce, but rather removing an immediate threat.
Palestinian medical officials report one person has been injured in the gun battle.
