Oh boo hoo hoo, Palestinian kids mistakenly murdered by Qassam rocket aimed at them Jews!!
By Avi Issacharoff, Haaretz Correspondent and The Associated Press
A Qassam rocket fired by Palestinian militants struck the northern Gaza
Strip on Tuesday, killing an eight-year-old boy and his six-year-old
sister, and injuring five other children.
The rocket, fired at Israel, fell short and hit the children's house in
the village of Beit Lahiya. No group claimed responsibility.
Moaiya Hassanain, a Palestinian health official, said the wounded were
evacuated to hospital for medical treatment.
The Kamal Adwan hospital identified the dead children as eight-year-old
Wesam Abed Allah and his six-year-old sister Hala.
The Associated Press had earlier quoted witnesses as saying the blast was
the result of the children playing with a homemade rocket or a mortar
shell that they had stumbled upon. It is not uncommon for Qassam rockets
fired at Israel to land inside the Gaza Strip.
On Monday, a Qassam rocket hit a preschool in the western Negev, causing
damage to surrounding buildings but no injuries.
