Two Palestinian girls were killed Friday when a rocket fired by Palestinian terrorists landed short of its Israeli target. According to witnesses, the girls were immediately killed after sustaining a direct hit. Gaza Health Ministry official Dr. Moiaya Hassanain identified the two victims as 5-year-old Hanin Abu Khoussa and her 12-year-old cousin, Sabah Abu Khoussa. Three other young people were wounded, Hassanain said. Hamas announced then that it planned to investigate the incident, which occurred in the northern Gaza Strip town of Beit Lahiya.
