Hamas says it fired Grad missiles at Israel

Israeli police said two children were lightly hurt when a Grad hit a house in Ofakim.

    The armed wing of Hamas said on Saturday it had fired four Grad rockets at the Israeli town of Ofakim, where officials earlier reported two children had been lightly wounded.

    "We fired four Grad rockets at the Zionist town of Ofakim," some 15 kilometres from the Gaza Strip, said a statement from the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades.

    "This is our response to the crimes of the Zionist occupation after the deaths of 15 of our martyrs and dozens of injured" in Gaza.
