Teen Injured in Hamas School Bus Bombing

hamas fires missile at school bus in the NegevHamas continued its life of crime today, targeting a school bus in a missile attack. The missile was shot from the Gaza Strip and directly hit a school bus outside Kibbutz Sa’ad, in the Negev, injuring two people.

A 16-year-old student is in critical condition after paramedics managed to resuscitate him. He was air-lifted to Soroka Medical Center in Beersheva, where he is undergoing surgery. Soroka officials say that he is suffering from head injuries. The bus driver is listed in light condition after being hit in the leg. Fortunately, all the other students had left the bus shortly before, so these were the only two people on the bus when the missile struck.

Forty-five rockets and mortar shells were fired into Israel from the Gaza Strip in the span of three hours on Thursday afternoon. Arab terror groups claimed that they had fired two longer-range rockets into Israel. Shortly after, the IDF’s Iron Dome anti-rocket system was successfully activated for the first time, intercepting a Grad rocket fired towards Ashkelon.

Mortars and Kassam rockets continued to fall in Eshkol, Sha’ar HaNegev, and Ashkelon through Thursday night.

An emergency information line was opened for Sha’ar HaNegev: 08-680-6450
