Israel attacks Gaza rocket crew

Israel’s Air Force attacked a Gazan rocket crew, as 12 Kassams hit Israel.

Military aircraft fired a missile Wednesday at a group of Palestinians preparing to launch rockets from the northern Gaza Strip into Israel. Two terrorists were killed and four wounded.

Islamic Jihad claimed the rocket crew as its own.

Other terrorists managed to fire at least six rockets across the border, but caused no casualties. One rocket hit a home in Sderot and left several people in shock shortly before President Bush arrived in Israel.

As Bush traveled to Jerusalem, five more Kassams hit the Sderot area, lightly injuring one person.
