Fighting flares in Gaza, shattering lull
Source: Reuters via Yahoo

An anti-tank missile fired from Gaza hit an Israeli school bus on Thursday, wounding two people, and Israeli forces retaliated by shelling the territory, killing a 50-year-old man, Palestinian medics said.

A teenage boy aboard the bus was seriously wounded, and at least eight people including a 4-year-old girl were injured in the densely populated Gaza Strip by the Israeli response, which included tank, warplane and helicopter fire.

An Israeli F-16 warplane bombed a major security compound of the Islamist Hamas group which rules Gaza, rocking Gaza City with a big explosion and wounding at least one person there.

The Israeli military said 45 rockets and mortars were launched into Israeli territory from Gaza in the space of three hours, the heaviest fire in two weeks. There were no immediate reports of further Israeli casualties as a result.

Thankfully there were no dead and only two wounded in the attack on the school bus. Not to diminish the response and the casualties caused, but I hate it when children are targeted intentionally.
