IDF soldier killed by explosive device near Kissufim

Posted by Atilla89 on March 6, 2008

Really breaking news, as in I just read this after I posted the previous post. Read the whole thing at the Jerusalem Post.

A soldier in an IDF tracking unit was killed and another soldier seriously wounded on Thursday by a bomb near Kissufim, shortly after gun battles were reported in the area.

The wounded soldier was airlifted to the hospital for treatment.

Meanwhile, Palestinian medical officials said an IDF attack on a rocket-launching site in northern Gaza killed a Palestinian operative. The army had no immediate comment.

Also Thursday morning, five Kassam rockets slammed into open fields in the western Negev, and four mortar shells fired from the Gaza strip hit open fields near Ein Hashlosha. Gunfire was also heard in the area.
