Lets hope Israeli casualties are kept low.
Gaza rocket kills Israeli civilian, Hamas infiltrators wound IDF soldiers
One Israeli civilian died after sustaining critical injuries from a rocket attack near Dimona on Saturday afternoon. Four other people, including two young children, were wounded in the attack and were evacuated to a hospital for medical treatment.
Continuous rocket fire bombarded southern Israel throughout the day as the IDF entered a third day of its ground operation in Gaza.
Paramedics pronounced the death of the Beduin man in his 30s after resuscitation attempts at the scene.
The IDF blames Hamas for the recent volley of rocket fire that killed Israel’s second civilian casualty in the recent conflict. The military vowed to continue its operation in Gaza with “determination and intensity.”
On Saturday morning, a Hamas terrorist squad entered Israel through a smuggling tunnel from the central Gaza Strip and headed towards an Israeli community.
The cell encountered an IDF patrol, and an exchange of fire ensued. One terrorist was killed and four IDF soldiers were wounded.
Two soldiers were moderately wounded and taken to hospital, two others sustained light injuries.
