A 16-year boy was critically injured after a bus driving near the Sha'ar Hanegev Regional Council was hit, apparently by an anti-tank missile, fired from the Gaza Strip on Thursday. He is currently being treated for severe trauma.
An hour later the fire from Gaza continued, and a rocket exploded inside a town in Eshkol Regional Council. No injuries or damage were reported.
The bus was hit in the rear, causing its windows to shatter. The victims were apparently inside the bus. Rescue forces were quick to arrive on the scene to evacuate the victims, and the roads were immediately blocked for fear of additional attacks.
As of 11:30,PST, over 45 rockets and mortars from Gaza have exploded within 3 hours.
Hamas claimed responsibility for shooting a missile that struck an Israeli bus, critically wounding a teenage boy on his way home from school.
The school bus was traveling in southern Israel near the Gaza border when it was hit by an anti-tank missile, Israeli authorities said.
Using anti-tank missiles on school buses? Will Jewish Voice for Peace condemn Hamas for using disproportionate force? I somehow doubt it.
