3 wounded by Gaza rockets, Jewish boy hurt in Hebron bombing

Thursday, March 27, 2008 |  by Staff Writer

Palestinian terrorists operating out of the Gaza Strip fired some 20 rockets at communities in southern Israel on Wednesday and early Thursday morning, leaving three people wounded and a number of homes damaged.

The three casualties occurred during a rocket attack on the battered southern Israel town of Sderot. The victims, including a Sudanese refugee seeking haven in the Jewish state, were lightly wounded by shrapnel.

Earlier, a rocket fired at a nearby kibbutz landed in the backyard of a family home, damaging it and several neighboring houses.

Late Wednesday evening, a 14-year-old Jewish boy sustained moderate injuries when Palestinian terrorists detonated a roadside bomb against the vehicle in which he was traveling near the biblical Judean town of Hebron.

Members of US-backed Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah party claimed credit for the attack.
