GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A four-year-old Israeli child was killed after mortar fire struck two cars in Sdot Negev region of southern Israel on Friday afternoon.

The Israeli military told Ma'an that the child was killed amid a barrage of rockets from Gaza, which also hit a number of cities across southern and central Israel.

Israeli sources said that two cars caught fire and burned as a result of the shell.

An Israeli military spokeswoman told Ma'an that the child was killed in Nahal Oz in Shaar HaNegev, but a later military statement said that the child died in neighboring Sdot Negev.

At least four were injured as approximately 80 rockets fell across Israel from Gaza on Friday, a day after 100 rockets were launched.

The Israeli military said on Friday that two Israelis were injured when rockets fell on Beersheba and Sderot earlier in the day, while two other Israelis were injured when another rocket hit a synagogue in Ashdod.

The Israeli military said 430 rockets have been fired from Gaza since a temporary ceasefire collapsed on Tuesday.

In the same time, the Israeli military has killed more than 60 Palestinians across Gaza in widespread airstrikes that have left hundreds more injured.

Israel has killed more than 2,090 Gazans, mostly civilians, since it launched a massive assault on the besieged coastal enclave in July, which also left 10,500 injured and 100,000 homeless.

68 Israelis have been killed in the same period, all but four of whom were soldiers killed during the ground invasion.

It's always sad when a child is killed. Even if it's a zionist child. This time it will be big news, and the zionists will use this for many years. They don't care about the 561 Palestinian children, they even write on Facebook they want more Palestinian children killed. Sad, shame on the world for not standing behind all children!!

Media reports Israel will now step up its bombing of Gaza... a child is a child, no matter what colour or creed.... Israel has has now caused the death of one of its own.

This child's death might have been prevented if the Chief of Staff (Israel), along with the government hadn't told the people living on the border it was safe to return. It might also have been prevented if the US hadn't continued to (re) arm Israel & if Israel had stayed in the peace talks instead of falsely claiming the ceasefire had been broken. Of course now they will use this death as a reason to inflict more damage on Gaza & lie about rockets being fired from UNWRA schools. All kids count.

Yes, you hate to see the death of any child, but Israel has brought this on themselves. Stop the criminal occupation and all the crimes against the Palestinians. You [Israel] claim self defense, but you created this situation. What person/group would not eventually try to protect themselves and fight back after over 65 years of being murdered and occupied. Though I don't condone any military acts against civilians, I can totally understand the situation Hamas and others are in.

If Hamas/PLO stop firing - so will Israel and then peace and prosperity for all. If Israel stops firing - Hamas continues til all Israelis are dead. What choice does Israel have?

While we are in Switzerland sad about every childs death we are aware that Hamas encourages every muslim to kill Jews. We wonder if this is reflecting the ideology of the average Gazan people or if it is Hamas ideology only. I wonder if you are going to post my question or refrain out of concern to get in trouble.

It's amazing how all of the commenters so far are Hamas sympathizers if not total supporters. What's even more ridiculous is how stupid their comments are, supposedly having mercy on the death of any child, yet supporting the monster that continues to take the toll of lives on both sides of the battle. Yes, idiots! It's not about Zionism, or occupation, or Israelis, or Arabs, or Jews. It's about Fundamentalist Islam and they will gladly chop your heads off too if you don't comply. Wake up, fools

#9 Sami/USA, either you are totally delusional or just a very good Zionist liar. Israel wants to live in a state of perpetual "emergency" so they can keep claiming their bogus "self defense" for the murderous acts they commit. Israel does not want "peace", because their end game is to drive out all Arabs between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea. Anything less is a failure to the Zionist fascists.
