Mohammed Jaber Daffallah (22), was killed with one shot to the forehead by an Israeli army sniper, as he looked out of his bedroom window. Israeli forces entered the area and surrounded the town after Palestinian militants had fired two rockets into the nearby Israeli settlement of Sderot, killing two people. The Israelis said that local farms and orchards were being used to provide cover for militants.
