DEVELOPING: Israel's military spokesman says a series of attacks have occurred in the country, as assailants targeted Israeli soldiers, a passenger bus and another vehicle near the border with Egypt.

The spokesman, Brig-Gen. Yoav Mordechai, says there are fatalities as well as wounded. He says civilians and soldiers are among the casualties. At least five people were killed and 14 were injured.

The attacks began when a gunmen opened fire on passenger bus near the Israeli-Egyptian border. Minutes later, a series of bombs exploded next to an Israel Defense Force patrol in the area. Gunmen then launched an anti-tank missile at another vehicle, injuring passengers inside, the Jerusalem Post reports.

Israel's Channel 10 TV reports that a fourth attack has occurred.

Mordechai also reported a shootout between security forces and assailants in the bus attack. The Israeli army says they have killed two of the suspected attackers.

"This seems like a coordinated attack," a senior IDF officer told the Jerusalem Post.

Military spokesman Brig.-Gen. Yoav Mordechai says the attackers used heavy weapons, possibly mortars or anti-tank weapons, and explosive devices during the attacks.

Which one literally scorched and salted the earth in Iran, and left cities abandoned to this day because the Caliph of Turkey (whatever) killed or insulted his messenger?

Kid stuff. Tamerlane once ordered that a tower be built out of live men piled on top of one another and cemented together with bricks and mortar.

Regardless, you're not making anyone look like a pussy. Not even a cat.
