Israeli tank shells killed at least four Palestinians and wounded 25 in the Gaza Strip on Saturday after an apparent attack on an Israeli army patrol in the border area, Palestinian medics and local witnesses said.
The casualty toll was one of the highest in a single incident in Gaza in recent months. Residents said a crowded mourning tent in the Shijaia neighborhood near Gaza City was full of people paying respects to a bereaved family man when a shell struck.
Ambulances, private vehicles and motorbikes rushed the wounded to hospital, eyewitnesses said. Among those killed was an 18-year-old man.

That’s what happens when you shoot at Israeli tanks from “a crowded mourning tent.”
Firing on innocent funerals again template rolled out. Israeli tanks are just too good with their targeting systems to miss.
As far as I can tell, other than attacks, there are only weddings and funerals in Islam.
Go, Israel, Go!
Any secondary detonations?
Arabs must have more funerals and weddings than all other peoples combined, based on the fact that you can't throw a rock over your left shoulder without hitting one. Every bomb and shell shot at them always finds it's way to a funeral or a wedding (once all the baby formula factories are taken out).
An Israeli tank fired “shells” into a funeral tent and kill only four? If the “shells” were HE instead of Sabot rounds they would kill everyone in the tent. Something is bogus about this story. I know, it’s a Reuters story, that explains it.
“Attack on Israeli’s results in 4 dead, 25 wounded”
would be more accurate IMO
The key is not to kill, but to wound badly, forcing the opposition to devote resources handling the wounded. Good job Israel!
If you don’t want your tent blown up, don’t shoot at the tanks.
The Philistines may be rocket shooters, but they’re not rocket scientists.
They are going to need a bigger tent.
...after an apparent attack on an Israeli army patrol in the border area...Apparent attack? Lots of details in the story, no disclaimers except for that. Partisan Media Shills ping.
Israeli tankers don’t know where reverse gear is, they never plan to use it!
OK, so the Palestinians started it and the victims fought back. Sorry about any "innocents" that may have gotten hurt as the result of taking part in the attack in the first place.
And once again, the Palestinians played the perfect dupe for the foreign policy of their masters in Tehran and Riyadh, who finance their attacks on Israel. No loss to the Mullahs, they're just Palies... what a bunch of chumps.
When do we start playing Cowboys and mozlums?
Damned if the Israelis haven’t become lousy shots.
C’mon boys! Need to up the kill rate.
We don’t need “palestinian” propaganda on FR from a noobie sandmaggot.
