Hundreds of rockets were fired Monday between Palestinian armed factions and Israel, killing at least three Palestinians and raising the specter of another deadly war as the United Nations urged both sides to "step back from the brink". The latest flare-up comes after an Israeli incursion into the enclave the day before resulted in a deadly confrontation that left seven Palestinians and one Israeli officer dead. The Israeli military said more than 300 projectiles were fired from the Gaza Strip into southern Israel, around 60 of which were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system. One Israeli soldier was severely wounded, the army said, after an anti-tank missile hit a bus near the kibbutz of Kfar Aza.A high-ranking officer, identified by the Israeli military as Lt. Col. M. May, was also killed.Over 200 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire since that date.
