Default 2 Soldiers injured in Kasssam attacks

My deepest feelings go out to the two families of these soldiers. In the odd world of the Middle East, these attacks are a good sign. As PA and Israeli talks get closer, Gaza will become more desperate to provoke Israel into an over reaction to scuttle the talks.


Clashes between the IDF and Palestinian terrorists along the Gaza border intensified on Tuesday, when two IDF soldiers were slightly injured by mortar fire near the security fence in southern Gaza .

The injured soldiers were evacuated by helicopter to Soroka Hospital in Beersheba.


IDF forces returned fire in the area that the two mortar shells were fired from.

Tuesday's incident took place in the same area where an IDF soldier was slightly wounded in
clashes with Palestinians on Monday.

The soldier, from the Armored Corps, was part of a force that intercepted two Palestinians who were trying to lay a bomb along the security fence in the southern Gaza Strip.

The force detected the Palestinians and opened fire, killing one of them. In response, sniper fire was opened and the soldier was wounded and evacuated to Soroka Hospital in Beersheba.

It is still not clear who was responsible for the blast.

Following the incident, two rockets were fired into Israel from Gaza, exploding in the Eshkol area in the western Negev. No injuries were reported and no damage was caused in Monday's rocket fire.

My prayers and thoughts are with both these soldiers and their families.
