Gaza terrorists fire anti-tank missile at school bus, teen critically injured (update)

From JPost:
An anti-tank missile shot from the Gaza Strip exploded near a school bus outside Kibbutz Sa'ad in the Sha'ar Hanegev Regional Council on Thursday, injuring two people.

The bus driver was listed in moderate condition, and one 16-year-old passenger was critically injured. They were the only people on the bus.

Magen David Adom paramedics were fighting for the 16-year-old's life as he was being transported to Soroka Medical Center in Beersheba.

Police sealed off roads in the area due to the threat of additional projectile fire. Civilians in the area were asked to remain in their homes.
The flip side of Israel's successful deployment of anti-tank missile defenses: now Gaza terrorists have all these wonderful anti-tank missiles that can no longer hurt tanks.

So, naturally, they change their targets to school buses.

UPDATE: 16 rockets and mortars were fired at southern Israel. And it was later revealed that the injured boy was 13 years old. 

He suffered head injuries and is in surgery.
