Gun Fire from Gaza Hits Israeli Kibbutz

Thursday, 11 Nov 2010 08:43 AM

Two bullets fired from the northern Gaza Strip on Thursday slammed into an Israeli kibbutz causing damage but not injuries, a police spokesman said.

"The shots were fired from the Gaza Strip and hit a building and a vehicle in Kibbutz Zikkim," Micky Rosenfeld told AFP, referring to a collective village located several hundred metres (yards) from the northernmost part of the border between Israel and Gaza.

"It was a large weapon, much bigger than a (machine gun). It was a long-range, 0.50 calibre bullet," he said.

An AFP correspondent at the scene said the bullets had hit an industrial area of the kibbutz, with one ricocheting off the pavement and into a car windscreen, and the second hitting a mattress factory.

Rosenfeld said there was "no chance" the gun fire had originated from anywhere other than the Gaza Strip.

The Israeli army could not immediately confirm any cross-border shooting.
