Attacks from Gaza have injured 22 Israelis today — medical officials

Attacks from the Gaza Strip have injured 22 Israelis, one of them severely, according to medical officials.

An IDF soldier was seriously wounded in an anti-tank missile strike that hit the bus he was sitting in near the Gaza border.

The other 21 sustained light injuries from shrapnel caused by rockets and mortar shells or were hurt while running to bomb shelters for cover, medical officials say.

Nineteen of the injured people were sent to Ashkelon’s Barzilai Hospital. The other three were treated at Beersheba’s Soroka Medical Center, the hospitals say.

Dozens of people also received treatment after they suffered panic attacks brought on by the rocket and mortar strikes.
