Two Israelis were wounded following a barrage of rocket and mortar fire, one of whom succumbed to his wounds. The victim, Dror Chanin, 37, was at the Erez Crossing delivering food and cheer to soldiers when a barrage of rockets and mortars rained down and critically wounding him.
This incident comes just hours after Hamas, the terror group which has been firing rockets indiscriminately into Israeli civilian population centers for the past 7 days, rejected a proposed cease fire proposed by Egypt.
Chanin and another man, 44, were wounded at the Erez Crossing, which serves as one of the main crossings between the Gaza Strip and Israel. The men were there giving out food and cheering up the soldiers that man the outpost.
Both men were rushed to Brazilai Hospital, Chanin succumbed to his wounds en route, while the other man was listed in stable condition.
