Palestinian terrorists fire two missiles into Israeli city; kill two Israelis, including a 3-year-old child
The Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) reports that Palestinian terrorists from the Islamic Jihad and Hamas have fired another missile at an Israeli city, aiming for a kindergarten; this time they murderered one man and a 3-year-old child:
One Israeli was killed and several others were wounded after Palestinians fired two missiles at the town of Sderot on Monday wounding.
[Update: I have just heard on Israeli radio that there were two Israelis murdered: one 50 year-old man and one 3-year-old child. There are also 14 people injured, including two in serious condition.]
One child and an older woman were evacuated to hospital in critical condition, Magen David Adom rescue workers said. They said that the missiles landed on a street between two kindergartens.
The homemade missiles were fired just hours after terrorists carried out a well-planned operation in the Gaza Strip, blowing up an outpost and killing one soldier. A short while later, IAF helicopters fired missiles at two metal workshops in the coastal area.
The improvised Kassam rockets landed on a road not far from a kindergarten, rescue workers said.
It was not immediately clear how many people were wounded or what condition they were in. Israel Radio said a few people had been wounded by shrapnel, while others were suffering from trauma.
Sderot, just a few kilometers from the Gaza border, is often a target of Palestinian rockets.
The Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Hamas, and Arafat's Al-Aksa brigades reject any peace with Israel and call for her destruction and the genocide of her citizens; click here for more details, and click here for a list of homicide bombings executed by these Islamic fascists that have resulted in the death of over a thousand Israeli men, women, and children in the last couple of years.Posted by David Melle at June 27, 2004 11:28 PM
