Bullet hits southern Israel home; officials believe Palestinian
sniper behind attack
A bullet hit a house Friday in the southern Israel community of Netiv
Ha´asara, which is located right next to the Gaza Strip.
Police officials suspect that the bullet was fired by a Palestinian
sniper from Gaza. No injuries were reported in the apparent attack.
A resident in the southern community heard the whistle of the bullet
while walking in a street that faces Gaza Strip homes. Subsequently,
the man noticed a bullet hole in the wall of a nearby home.
The Sderot police launched an investigation into the incident.
At this time, officials do not see any other possibility except for a
Gaza attack targeting Israeli civilians. Given the short distance
between the Strip and homes in Netiv Ha´asara, authorities believe
the bullet was indeed fired by a sniper in Gaza. (Copyright 2012 ©
