Israel strikes terrorist as Gaza rockets hit Israel, Egypt

An Egyptian woman was injured when rockets from Gaza struck the border town of Rafah, and an Israeli airstrike killed a terrorist operative as cross-border fire interrupted a fragile cease-fire.

Israel’s Air Force targeted the car of a local Islamic Jihad leader in Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip. The early Wednesday morning strike came after the Air Force struck Gaza terrorists preparing to fire rockets into Israel’s south. The dead terrorist leader reportedly was responsible for funding last week’s coordinated attacks on Israeli civilian vehicles.

Later Wednesday, at least two rockets fired from Gaza struck southern Israel.

A cease-fire reportedly negotiated by Egypt with Hamas and the smaller terrorist groups has been mostly holding despite the small breaches.

Also Wednesday, an Egyptian woman was lightly injured when a rocket fired from Gaza landed in the Egyptian town of Rafah, striking a residential area, and not the desert, as has been the case in the past.
