Gaza rocket falls in Egypt, injuring a woman

From Haaretz:
A woman was wounded by a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip into the Egyptian town of Rafah on Wednesday, Egypt's state news agency MENA reported, as tension simmered in the region after a spate of cross-border violence.

The woman was taken to hospital with light injuries, a security source in the area said.

Another source said it was the first time a rocket from Gaza had landed on a residential area and not in the desert, which was "raising concern among the security forces here".
Al Ahram says the rocket killed cattle as well.

I can't wait for Egypt to threaten diplomatic retaliation against Hamas.
