The morning was relatively quiet, after yesterday the Air Force attacked gunmen close to the border fence in northern Gaza. The IDF reported that one of the gunmen was killed in the air strike, after which ground forces killed the other two accompanying him.

Yesterday a boy was injured from a Qassam rocket that landed in Kibbutz Gevim. The boy’s father told Ynet that the rocket landed in the family’s garden, and his son was injured from shrapnel that lodged itself in the boy’s shoulder.
