PALESTINIAN security forces have entered former Israeli settlements in the Gaza Strip, a spokesman for the Palestinian interior ministry said.
'We have entered Netzer Hazani, Ganei Tal and Katif. The Palestinian flag has been planted in the three settlements so far,' Tawfiq Abu Khussa said.
The Israeli army had earlier lowered its flag over the Gaza Strip, the tiny territory it has occupied for the last 38 years."
