Qassam wounds infant in kibbutz Zikim
Palestinian terror groups continue bombardment of Israeli communities near Gaza, two-year-old boy wounded from shrapnel

A rocket fired by Palestinian terror groups from northern Gaza landed in the yard of a kibbutz home on Sunday afternoon, wounded a two-year-old boy. Israeli police and paramedics said the infant sustained light shrapnel wounds and was evacuated to the Barzilai hospital in Ashkelon for treatment.

 

Medics also treated the infant's mother for shock.

 

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said the rocket scored a direct hit on a house in Kibbutz Zikim, an Israeli communal farm. Initial reports said the rocket hit inside the nearby Zikim military base, where a direct rocket hit in September wounded more than 40 soldiers.
