CBNNews.com - JERUSALEM, Israel - On Monday night, an Israel Air Force (IAF) strike on a Palestinian terror cell killed one gunman. Givati Brigade infantrymen entered the Strip following the air strike, killing two other cell members.

The incident took place at the northern end of the Gaza Strip, just north of Beit Lahiya.

After spotting the gunmen moving toward the border, about 1,000 feet from the security fence, the aircraft fired, killing one terrorist.

The Givati Brigade unit found Kalashnikov rifles, grenades and anti-tank missiles on the bodies.

Earlier Monday evening, a Kassam rocket fell short of its target, hitting a house in the Arab town of Beit Hanoun, near the border with Israel. Three Palestinians were injured.

Palestinian sources claimed the house was hit by an Israeli tank shell, though there were no tanks in the area.

Meanwhile, a four-year-old boy at Kibbutz Gevim in the western Negev was hit by shrapnel in a Kassam rocket attack.

"We had just returned from the north and the boy was sitting in the back seat of the car. As we arrived at the kibbutz, we heard the Color Red [warning siren], and the Kassam landed in our backyard.

"The shrapnel pierced the car near the fuel tank and hit the boy's shoulder. He was evacuated to the hospital for treatment," his dad said.
