Palestinian Attacks Continue

(Jerusalem Post) Yaakov Katz and Margot Dudkevitch - Meir Ohayon, an Israeli truck driver loading produce at the Gaza Strip town of Rafiah Yam, was shot and wounded seriously Sunday by Palestinian sniper fire from Rafah. Hamas claimed responsibility for the attack. Five Palestinian mortars landed in Neve Dekalim in the southern Gaza Strip Sunday night, damaging some homes. Palestinians also fired an anti-tank missile at an IDF position in Rafiah Yam near the border with Egypt. On Sunday an Israeli Arab was moderately wounded when Palestinians opened fire at a group of construction workers building the security fence south of Kalkilya. Col. Shuki Rinsky, head of operations in the Gaza division, said in the past week, 14 Kassam rockets, 16 anti-tank rockets, and 72 mortar shells were fired at Israeli communities and IDF positions. "The Palestinian Authority is doing nothing to stop or thwart the terrorist activities," he said, adding, "An example of this is the Kassam rocket launcher found on Friday near a Palestinian Police position not far from the Erez crossing."
