Phosphorous shells fired from Gaza into Israel

Nine mortar shells and two Qassam rockets were fired from Gaza into southern Israel yesterday. The IDF and Israeli Police reported that two of the mortars fired included phosphorous. ‘A police bomb disposal team examined a number of mortars that were fired today. We can confirm that two out of the nine mortars contained phosphorous,' said Police Spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld. The Israeli Air Force responded to the rocket firing by striking at smuggling tunnels along the Gaza-Egypt border.

Despite the rocket attacks into Israel, PM Netanyahu yesterday met with PA President Abbas and US Secretary of State Clinton in Jerusalem to continue talks. Rocket attacks from Gaza have increased recently as terrorist groups oppose the progress being made in direct peace talks.
