A car bomb blew up just outside Kfar Darom, wounding four soldiers
who were 30 meters away - one of them moderately-to-seriously.
The terrorists attempted to deflect attention in two ways:
The jeep sported an Israeli flag, and fired an anti-tank missile at
Kfar Darom at the same time.
Despite all, the soldiers in a jeep near the Kfar Darom junction
noticed the car dashing suspiciously away from Kfar Darom,
and called upon it to stop. When it did not, the soldiers opened fire,
causing the car to explode and wounding the soldiers themselves -
but preventing a much worse catastrophe.

Three IDF soldiers and a civilian were killed and ten injured when
a suicide bomber blew herself up at the Erez checkpoint in the
Gaza Strip. The female terrorist (mother of two) evaded metal
detectors by claiming she had platinum insets in her legs.
Because she was a woman, a female soldier was sent for,
to inspect her. The terrorist made use of the waiting period
for the arrival of the woman soldier, made her way further
into the complex, and exploded. The Erez crossing is intended to
allow Palestinians to work in Israel and provide for their families.
