Did the IDF Conduct a ‘Rescue Mission’ in Gaza?

Sources in Gaza claim they witnessed what appeared to be a “rescue” of two families from Gaza, with the IDF ferrying approximately ten Gazan Arabs through the border fence at Khan Yunis in southern Gaza into Israel.
Once on the Israeli side, the Arabs were quickly ushered into IDF jeeps and driven away.
Among the group were what appeared to be two families – two couples, and a number of children and infants. The families were not under arrest, but appeared to be leaving Gaza voluntarily – and quickly.
The “rescue” was apparently witnessed by Hamas terrorists, who attempted to storm the border fence. IDF forces opened fire on the terrorists as they approached the fence. Islamic Jihad operatives also claimed they witnessed the incident.
Palestinian sources assert there were phone conversations between the families and an Israeli contact prior to the mission.
The IDF has not commented on the incident. Media pundits speculate that the families may have been helping Israel with intelligence information, and were rescued when they were “burned” – about to be arrested by Hamas forces for aiding Israel.
IDF sources say there has been a dramatic upswing in the number of Gazans seeking shelter in Israel.
