Five Palestinians Killed in Gaza by Islamic Jihad Rocket

(Ha'aretz-Jerusalem Post) Jack Khoury - Five Palestinians were killed, including four children, and several more injured by an errant Islamic Jihad rocket in Jabalya in Gaza on Saturday. "We have videos that prove beyond a doubt that this is not an Israeli attack," the head of Israel's public diplomacy said. A video was distributed showing a rocket being launched from Gaza at night and then veering immediately off course into a built-up area. Prime Minister Yair Lapid's spokesperson Keren Hajioff said, "One in four rockets fired from Gaza towards Israel lands inside Gaza." An Israeli intelligence official said "we also have solid information from many Palestinians that verifies the fact that the harm to the children in Jabalya was caused by a failed rocket of the Islamic Jihad." The Israeli military was not operating in the area at the time.
