April 7th – On my way home from Be’er Sheva today, I received a phone call from my daughter asking me where I was and informing me of the school bus that had been hit by some form of rocket or laser, she wasn’t sure which. She told me that buses from Tel Aviv were being prevented from entering the area which was still under fire. This is the news report on ynet.co.il. We were told to stay in our fortified rooms, but the warning has been taken down a notch – we only need be 15 seconds from shelter. Click the link to read the article.

Teen critically injured in attack on Negev bus
Initial report suggests anti-tank fired from Gaza Strip hit bus driving near Sha’ar Hanegev Regional Council; 16-year-old boy critically injured, another man sustains leg wounds. IDF bombs target in Gaza, killing one, according to Palestinians
A 16-year boy was critically injured after a bus driving near the Sha’ar Hanegev Regional Council was hit, apparently by an anti-tank missile, fired from the Gaza Strip on Thursday. He is currenlty being treated for severe trauma to the head, after sustaining shrapnel injuries.
An hour later the fire from Gaza continued, with more than 15 mortar shells launched at Israel. One of the shells exploded inside a town in Eshkol Regional Council. No injuries or damage were reported.
Afterwards three rockets were fired towards Ashkelon, and witnesses reported seeing one of them explode in midair, apparently due to interception by the Iron Dome defense system.
