Israeli troops entered the northern and central Gaza Strip in a search for rockets, arms and suspected terrorists. Palestinian sources said five Palestinian policemen were killed in exchanges of fire during the Israeli incursion. In what was described as Israel’s biggest operation in Gaza since the intifada began more than 16 months ago, large numbers of infantry, tanks and bulldozers entered three Gaza towns overnight Wednesday.
