Sinai: Women hurt by rocket fired from Gaza
Incident marked was first time a rocket from Gaza had landed on a residential area in Sinai
A woman was injured by a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip into the Egyptian town of Rafah on Wednesday, Egypt's state news agency MENA reported, as tension simmered in the region after a spate of cross-border violence.

 

The woman was taken to hospital with light injuries, said a security source in the area.

Another source said it was the first time a rocket from Gaza had landed on a residential area and not in the desert, which was "raising concern among the security forces here".

 

Egyptian security forces were searching the desert frontier with Gaza and Israel for terrorists who may be behind the killing of eight Israelis on Thursday along a road north of the Red Sea resort of Eilat, Egyptian officials said.
