Rockets kill 1 in Israel; Hamas military wing ends truce

One person was killed and at least 12 were injured Saturday when more than two dozen rockets fired by Gaza militants slammed into Israeli cites.

It's the latest in the ongoing tit-for-tat violence between Israel and militants over the past three days.

The fatality occurred in Beer Sheva, according to Eli Bin, an emergency official in the region. Four people were seriously injured and two suffered moderate wounds when rockets struck a house and car. An unknown number of trauma injuries were being transported to the hospital, Bin said.

    I wish this bloodshed would stop. There are good people on both sides. I don't see peace between Israel and Hamas. It makes me sad. Maybe one day they can live in peace.

    @negative:I think you are very much lacking in intellect. I think that your family comes from weak genes. I also feel that you and your entire family are losers. Do us all a favor and go off-line. Buzz Off!
