One person was killed this morning and two more injured when a Kornet anti-tank guided missile was fired at an Israeli jeep near the northern Gaza border. The IDF considers the use of the advanced weaponry a new level of escalation. Earlier the IDF had warned residents near the Gaza border to stay home for fear of snipers in the Strip.
The IDF said this morning over 1,050 rockets and mortar shells were fired from Gaza toward Israel since the outbreak of fighting on Monday evening. While 200 failed to reach Israeli territory, landing inside the Strip, some 850 entered Israeli airspace.
