Israel, Gaza Exchange Fire

One day after a British woman was killed in a bus bombing in Jerusalem, the security situation continued to deteriorate in Gaza, as Palestinian militants fired rockets into Israel overnight and Israel retaliated with tank fire and airstrikes. Israel was hit by five mortar shells and two Qasam rockets overnight with no serious injuries. Israel then launched four airstrikes against smuggling tunnels into Egypt. Israel also aimed tank fire over the border at a Hamas facility.
