A bombing attack on a bus in the Tel Aviv main street of Shaul Hamelekh Blvd. Wednesday, Nov. 21, left at least 25 people injured, five seriously.
A missile siren earlier alerted the towns and kibbutzim just west of Jerusalem – up to Beit Shemesh – Wednesday morning, Day 8 of the Gaza operation – the day after two Palestinian rockets missed the Israeli capital and landed at a West Bank Palestinian village. Two houses in Beir Tuvia took a direct hits, injuring a woman and causing shock. Iron Dome saved Ashkelon and Beersheba from missile barrages. Rocket fire was also directed at Kiryat Malachi, Yad Mordecai, Netiv Haasara, Yavne and Sdot Hanegev. Four shells exploded in the Eshkol district where a soldier was killed Tuesday. In days, the Palestinians have launched 1,400 rockets against Israeli civilian locations. Iron Dome intercepted 400, most of the rockets threatening built-up areas.
