A Gaza sniper on Monday night fired from the Gaza side of the border on a stationary Israeli car near Yad Mordechai on the Israeli side of the border with Gaza damaging the vehicle and a nearby building.
A photograph provided by the IDF showed that the sniper bullets shattered the back windscreen of the car, leaving broken glass on the car seat of a seven-month-old baby.
The incident was unusual as it was a new form of terror attack to come out of Gaza, an attack by sniper fire without even actually crossing into Israel.
Until now, attacks have necessitated terrorist figuring out a way to cross the border to carry out their plans. In contrast, the sniper who fired from the Gaza side of the border did not need to cross into Israel at all.
