Teen critically hurt.

An anti-tank missile shot from the Gaza Strip directly hit a school bus outside Kibbutz Sa’ad in the Sha’ar Hanegev Regional Council on Thursday, injuring two people. Defense Minister Ehud Barak ordered the IDF to respond speedily and to attack using all means necessary. 

An Israeli attack helicopter machine-gunned a target in Gaza City after the missile attack, for the first time since Operation Cast Lead. A Reuters correspondent said the sound of heavy fire from the helicopter was audible in the center of the city.

IDF forces struck back at various locations throughout the strip. A 50-year-old man and at least eight people, including a 4-year-old girl were injured in IDF and IAF strikes, Palestinian medics said.

In the Negev attack, the 13-year-old was in critical condition after paramedics managed to resuscitate him. He was airlifted to Soroka Medical Center in Beersheba where he was undergoing surgery. Soroka officials said that he was suffering from head injuries.

Apparently, the bus was hit just minutes after most children got off.

Thoughts and prayers for the young teen and his family. May he recover fully from his injures.

I wonder what we would do if Mexicans in Nueva Laredo routinely fired mortars and missiles across the Rio Grande into Laredo, Texas? I’m pretty sure we wouldn’t just shoot off a few rounds at the local politicians houses. And if and when the UN condemned us for leveling the city to the ground, I think the comment consensus of the country would be to tell the UN where they could stuff it.

“Thoughts and prayers for the young teen and his family. May he recover fully from his injures.”
