Paramedics bring in the wounded from an Israeli attack. The Israeli army struck over 15 Hamas targets in Gaza during the night, in response to what it described as constant rocket fire from the Strip. One of those rockets landed close to the border with Gaza, here in Sderot. The Israeli army says more than 20 rockets have been fired into Israel since Wednesday. Tensions have been high across the region after the body of an abducted Palestinian youth was found in Jerusalem on Wednesday. The discovery sparked clashes between Palestinians and Israeli police on the streets of Jerusalem. Many Palestinians and Israel suspect that the boy was kidnapped and killed in a possible revenge attack for the murders of three Israeli teenagers, whose bodies were discovered on Monday.
