Palestinian mortars injure 5 Israelis ferrying Gaza wounded to Israel

The five Israelis injured by Palestinian mortar shells, three in serious condition, were at the Erez crossing Sunday to pick up wounded and sick Gazans for treatment in Israeli hospitals, when they were hit by mortar fire from inside the Gaza Strip. All five from the Negev town of Rahat were employed as contractors by the Israeli Defense Ministry for this regular mission.
Since the attack, Israel has closed the Erez crossing.
