Gaza terrorists fired 25 missiles into southern Israel today including an anti-tank missile that hit an army patrol jeep.
The BBC reported:
Five Palestinians have been killed and more than 20 injured in a series of clashes close to the border between Israel and the Gaza Strip.
Four died when Israel open fired after a missile attack on an army patrol jeep which injured four Israeli soldiers.
Hamas officials said the casualties were civilians at a funeral in the Shijaia neighbourhood near Gaza City.
In a later incident, Islamic Jihad said one of its members was killed by an Israeli air strike.
Israel said it launched the attack, late on Saturday evening, after more rockets were fired from Gaza.
“A short while ago, the IDF (Israel Defence Forces) targeted a rocket-launching squad in the northern Gaza Strip moments after it fired rockets towards southern Israel. A direct hit was confirmed,” an Israeli military statement said.
“Over the past few hours, 25 rockets fired from the Gaza Strip hit southern Israel,” the statement added.
