The 11th victim of Kassam rocket fire died of wounds he received last week, Israel Radio revealed Thursday morning. Thirteen-year-old Chai Shalom suffered from cerebral palsy, and was deaf, mute, and confined to a wheel-chair. He was hospitalized after a rocket landed next to a bus transporting him and three other disabled children. According to the report, all four children were wounded by the force of the blast. The driver of the bus fainted and Shalom's caretaker alerted his father. The boy died last week in Soroka Hospital after his condition worsened. His father asked that Shalom be recognized as a terror victim and was denied because his particular incident had not been reported.
