IDF jeep and riders hit by missile from Gaza
Gaza terrorists hit an IDF jeep with an anti-tank missile early Saturday evening. The IDF Spokesman announced that four soldiers were hurt but gave no specific details regarding their degree of injury.The IDF reacted:
IDF Radio said that one soldier was very seriously wounded and another soldier was "moderately" wounded. There are reports the second soldier is suffering mostly from injuries to his arms and legs.
Two other soldiers were in light to moderate condition.
Immediately afterwards, tanks opened fire on the area from which the missile was fired. Tanks also fired on pre-selected targets in the Sa'ajiya area of Gaza near Nahal Oz. Palestinian sources said four people were killed in the return fire, and 25 others were injured.Yet still no reentry by the military into Gaza to put a stop to this violent aggression.
Islamic Jihad is believed to be behind the latest attack. The IDF views the incident as a severe escalation, and as part of a wider, stepped-up terrorist initiative to target its forces along the border.
Update: Knesset members say enough is enough, and we shouldn't have to put up with this terrorism anymore.
