An anti-tank missile fired from Gaza hit an Israeli school bus yesterday, wounding two people. Israeli forces retaliated by shelling the territory, killing a 50-year-old man, Palestinian medics said.

A teenage boy on board the bus was seriously wounded, and at least eight people, including a four-year-old girl, were injured in the Israeli response, which included tank, warplane and helicopter fire. An Israeli F-16 aircraft bombed a security compound of the Islamist Hamas group which rules Gaza, rocking Gaza City with a big explosion and wounding at least one person.
