An anti-tank missile shot from the Gaza Strip exploded near a school bus outside Kibbutz Sa’ad in the Sha’ar Hanegev Regional Council on Thursday, injuring two people.
The 16-year-old was in critical condition after paramedics managed to resuscitate him. He was airlifted to Soroka Medical Center in Beersheba. Magen David Adom relayed that the boy was struck in his head by shrapnel from the missile.
The bus driver was listed in light condition. They were the only people on the bus.
Police sealed off roads in the area due to the threat of additional projectile fire. Civilians in the area were asked to remain in their homes.
The missile came several hours after the IAF struck three smuggling tunnels in the southern Gaza Strip and one tunnel in the northern area of the Strip.
