CAIRO Aug 13 (Reuters) - One child was killed and two others were wounded when a rocket landed on their home in the Egyptian town of el-Mattallah south of Rafah, near the border with Gaza, security and medical sources told Reuters on Wednesday.
Sara Salama, 13, died while her brother Khaled, 8, and sister Rahaf, 2, sustained serious injuries and were taken to hospital.
The rocket impact is the third to hit the area in recent weeks, security sources said, adding that Egyptian authorities were investigating the incident.

Most likely these rockets hitting Egypt are misfires; Hamas or one of the other terrorist groups that makes its home in Gaza, firing missiles towards Israel, hoping to kill Jewish children, but they’ve missed Israel completely and murdered an Egyptian child instead.
It’s possible, though, that Hamas is firing rockets into Egypt deliberately, trying to send a message to the Egyptian authorities that Hamas is just as capable of terror against Egypt as it is against Israel – more so, as Egypt doesn’t have Israel’s defences. – Brian
