Palestinian mortar targets Israeli kindergarten

Wednesday, September 08, 2010 |  Israel Today Staff  

Palestinian terrorists operating out of the Gaza Strip fired a mortar shell at an elementary school compound in southern Israel on Wednesday morning, damaging the kindergarten building.

The attack came just 30 minutes before the students arrived for school. Officials said that had the attack happened just a little later, Israel would today be mourning a major tragedy.

School officials decided to go ahead with classes, but had all of the students study in the few buildings that are fully reinforced against Palestinian rocket and mortar attacks. Students were not permitted to go outside for recess.
