Accidentally? Hamas rocket hits Egypt
A Hamas rocket 'accidentally
' hit the Egyptian side of the Rafah border crossing on Saturday night, wounding an Egyptian soldier.
A rocket probably fired from the Gaza hit Egypt's Rafah border crossing with the embattled Palestinian enclave on Saturday, wounding a soldier, a security official told AFP.
The rocket "was most likely fired from Gaza and fell into Egyptian territory by mistake," the official said.
Hamas rejected a proposal for a cease fire that had been proposed by Egypt and accepted by Israel last week. Media reports indicate that Hamas wants Turkey and Qatar to take the lead in negotiating a 'cease fire' but that Israel is boxing Qatar out of the picture.
