IMEMC & Agencies:  Palestinian medical sources said that a three year-old child was injured after the Israeli army bombarded central Gaza, Monday at night,. Soldiers also fired shells into several areas in the besieged coastal region.

Dr. Ashraf Al-Qodra, spokesperson of the Ministry of Health in Gaza, said that the child was injured in the head and face, and was moved to a local hospital suffering moderate injuries, the Palestine News Network (PNN) has reported.
The attack took place near the Gaza Power Company in central Gaza.

Furthermore, the army bombarded two training centers that belong to the Al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of the Hamas movement, and the Al-Quds Brigades of the Islamic Jihad in Deir Al-Balah in central Gaza.

Israeli sources said that Palestinian fighters fired a Grad missile into the Western Negev causing no damage or injuries.

The sources added that two mortars were also fired into Sderot in the Negev, and that the shells landed and detonated in an open area causing no damage or injuries.

Earlier on Monday, an Israeli military commander warned that should shells be fired during the funeral of former Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon, Israel will retaliate “and teach Hamas a lesson”.

Sharon was buried Monday in his ranch only 10 kilometers away from Gaza. Fighters in Gaza previously targeted the ranch.

In related news, Israeli soldiers invaded the Al-Arroub refugee camp, in Hebron, and assaulted a physically challenged Palestinian causing several injuries.
Clashes occurred between the invading soldiers and local youths, while several Palestinians have been treated for the effects of tear gas inhalation.
