As with all developing news stories, reporting is subject to change as more information becomes available.

What we know right now is that a series of terrorist attacks have struck southern Israel. It appears that off-duty Israeli soldiers are the target.

In the first incident, Egged bus number 392, traveling from Beersheba to the southern resort city of Eilat was ambushed by a three-man terror cell. Over a dozen people were wounded in the attack, which took place on Highway 12, about 30km north of Eilat, near the Ein Netafim junction.[…]

Soon after that a second incident was reported, involving multiple roadside bombs and rocket fire at IDF forces patrolling the Israel Egypt border fence.

Note, that “rocket fire” has also been reported as “mortar fire from the Egyptian side of the border. It has also been reported that the first bus was carrying soldiers on their way home from border duty.

A third attack killed five more people on another bus. Israeli and Egyptian forces are searching for the perpetrators.

More: The blog Israel Matzav, which so competently covered the war last year, is liveblogging the attack. He seems to have much more information than the news services. Apparently two children were killed in an attack on a private car.
