"Nine Gazans have been killed in Israeli airstrikes since Wednesday night, with Israel's southern communities withstanding 20 rockets from Gaza over the same 24-hour period. Warning sirens repeatedly sent Israelis across the south into bomb shelters, but most of the rockets landed in empty fields near the Israeli cities of Ofakim, Ashkelon and Beersheba. A 9-month-old baby, though, was slightly hurt in Ashkelon when a car was hit with shrapnel." (0826/11)
