Cars parked at the Erez border crossing were hit Wednesday in a rocket attack launched by Gaza terrorists.
Eight cars were damaged by shrapnel that flew from the exploding rockets fired at the crossing by Hamas terrorists.
Erez is used by Gaza residents to enter Israel for specialized treatment at hospitals where they access care that is unavailable to them anywhere else. It is also used by international aid workers to enter Gaza.
Firefighters were forced to work quickly to avoid being hit by rocket fire, while trying to prevent spilled gasoline from igniting causing a conflagration at the scene.
