  • Missile from Gaza hits Israeli school bus, 2 hurt

    JERUSALEM (AP) — An anti-tank missile fired from the Gaza Strip struck a school bus in southern Israel Thursday, wounding two people, including one critically, Israeli officials said, prompting the fiercest Israeli retaliation on the coastal territory since a broad military offensive two years ago.

    Israel unleashed airstrikes and tank fire against Hamas targets across the border, killing three people and wounding 33 others, including four critically, said Palestinian health official Adham Abu Salmiya.

    He said one dead man was a 50-year-old civilian who was sitting outside his home when he was struck by tank fire. Two other men, in their 20s, were killed near the southern Gaza town of Rafah. It was unclear if they were civilians or militants.
