BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A 33-year-old Palestinian Bedouin citizen of Israel was killed and three others injured after a rocket from Gaza hit a village near the southern town of Dimona on Saturday.

The rocket apparently fell short of its target in the city of Dimona and hit Qasr al-Sir, an unrecognized Bedouin village in southern Israel with a population of around 1,000.

Israeli medical sources said that the injured included a 4-month-old baby girl in serious condition as well as a 5-year-old boy and a woman in her 30s with light injuries.

The injured appeared to all be members of the same family.

Israeli human rights groups have criticized the government for providing extensive rocket shelters in Jewish areas and cities across the country but failing to install safety equipment in areas populated by Palestinian citizens of Israel, especially Bedouin areas in the south.

More than 1,300 rockets have been launched from Gaza since Israel launched a massive assault on the region 12 days ago, with the majority landing harmlessly in open areas.

One Israeli who was volunteering with the army near the Erez border crossing was killed by a rocket previously, while around seven have been injured.

A number of the previously injured were also Bedouins, who live primarily in the deserts of southern Israel between entirely-Jewish towns and cities.

The Hamas terrorist rockets are all aimed at civilians. Hamas are vicious war criminals, not to be negotiated with but to be prosecuted to the full extent of international law in the same manner as their mentors were in Nurenberg.

This clip from the media shows some Hamas 'spokesman' proclaiming that Muslims have nothing to fear from Hamas rockets because they are aimed and will only hit 'Hebrews.' http://www.memritv.org/clip/en/4350.htm Once again, Hamas proves to the world that trying to kill Jews is more important than trying to provide for the people of Gaza or even not killing innocent Muslims. Hamas: a psychopathic criminal terrorist organization.

Why hit the Dimona nuclear power plant? Do the Palestinians think they are immune to the radiation?

The Hammas started this aggression. They use their own as shields to kill Israelis. The State of Israel has a right to defend itself. Adele Leibowitz/ NYC

I grieve for the losses here. May the families find some peace in this time of trouble. If I have one wish it is that the expansionist policies of the Israeli state cease or the USA have enough guts to cut the entire $3 billion a year in aid if the settlements are not dismantled and Jerusalem is not placed under the auspices of the United Nations as an international city belonging to peoples of all faiths. Enough of this killing and useless slaughter. All are human on this planet.
