Gaza Update

Palestinian officials say seven Palestinians including a mother and her four young children were killed in an Israeli strike on Biet Hanoun in the Gaza Strip today. An Israeli shell reportedly hit their one storey building during IDF counterterror activity in the area. Two Palestinian terrorists were killed. Before the Israeli shell, Palestinians launched two more Qassam rockets at the Israeli town of Sderot. Later the Palestinians fired six more Qassams at Israeli targets. There were no casualties but one home was seriously damaged. Hamas claimed responsibility for the rocketing.

Israel's Defense Minister Ehud Barak charged that Hamas bears complete responsibility for the casualties and the IDF will continue to conduct counterterror operations to protect Israeli civilians. Terrorists in Gaza repeatedly exploit Palestinian homes and civilians as cover for their attacks on Israel.

The IDF has confirmed that military operations were carried out noting that the terrorists use the town of Biet Hanoun as a launch pad for their Qassam rockets. The IDF operations were aimed at intercepting the Palestinian rocketing of Israel, snipers who fire across the border at Israeli farmers and soldiers as well as tunnel diggers under the security fence.

Despite the Palestinian rocketing, Israel sent more humanitarian supplies to Gaza and the Passover closure of the West Bank was lifted.
