4-year-old Israeli child killed by mortar fire in Negev

Aug. 22, 2014 6:18 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 23, 2014 6:09 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A four-year-old Israeli child was killed after mortar fire struck two cars in Sdot Negev region of southern Israel on Friday afternoon.

The Israeli military told Ma'an that the child was killed amid a barrage of rockets from Gaza, which also hit a number of cities across southern and central Israel.

Israeli sources said that two cars caught fire and burned as a result of the shell.

An Israeli military spokeswoman told Ma'an that the child was killed in Nahal Oz in Shaar HaNegev, but a later military statement said that the child died in neighboring Sdot Negev.

At least four were injured as approximately 80 rockets fell across Israel from Gaza on Friday, a day after 100 rockets were launched.

The Israeli military said on Friday that two Israelis were injured when rockets fell on Beersheba and Sderot earlier in the day, while two other Israelis were injured when another rocket hit a synagogue in Ashdod.

The Israeli military said 430 rockets have been fired from Gaza since a temporary ceasefire collapsed on Tuesday.

In the same time, the Israeli military has killed more than 60 Palestinians across Gaza in widespread airstrikes that have left hundreds more injured.

Israel has killed more than 2,090 Gazans, mostly civilians, since it launched a massive assault on the besieged coastal enclave in July, which also left 10,500 injured and 100,000 homeless.

68 Israelis have been killed in the same period, all but four of whom were soldiers killed during the ground invasion.
