Palestinian Baby Girl Killed, 25 Injured in Israeli ShellingA Palestinian baby girl was killed and 25 others, mostly children, injured when Israeli troops shelled the Gaza Strip Monday afternoon, said Palestinian medical and security sources.
Iman Mustafa Haggo, a 4-month-old baby girl, was hit by shell- fire when Israeli forces struck the Palestinian Khan Yunis refugee camp in southern Gaza Strip. Her mother was seriously wounded, Palestinian medical sources said.
Eyewitnesses said that Al-Khalidia Primary School was also shelled in the Israeli attack and several school children were wounded. Two buildings were destroyed and some other houses were damaged in the shelling, they added.
Meanwhile, an Israeli army spokesman said that the shelling of Khan Yunis was in retaliation for the firing of four mortar shells at two Jewish settlements in Gush Katif, south of the Gaza Strip, but no casualties or damages were caused.
The Palestinian security forces said that a heavy gunfight took place between Israeli troops and Palestinian gunmen in Khan Yunis and Rafah near the borders with Egypt, but no casualties were reported.
