11-Dec-10: Are the Gazan terrorists raising the stakes?

It's Saturday night, and this report is just in (source):
Two Palestinian militants were killed and an Israel Defense Forces soldier was moderately wounded on Saturday evening in an exchange of fire on Israel's border with the Gaza Strip. The exchange of fire was prompted by an attempt by Palestinian militants to infiltrate into Israel from Gaza. During the infiltration attempt, mortars were fired towards Israel from Gaza. The wounded IDF soldier was transported to a hospital by helicopter.
And this:
An IDF soldier sustained serious wounds and two Palestinian terrorists were killed during an incident near the Gaza border late Saturday evening. The incident began shortly after 9 pm, when soldiers manning an IDF observation spotted to suspicious figures approaching the security fence, apparently on their hands and knees. IDF tanks opened fire and killed the terrorists. Later, as soldiers were preparing to comb an area inside Palestinian territory, terrorists fired a number of rounds at them, apparently with assault rifles. One soldier was moderately wounded in the incident. He was airlifted to the Soroka Medical Center in Beersheba. Earlier Saturday, a Qassam rocket was fired from the Strip towards the western Negev region. There were no reports of injury or damage. The "Color Red" alert system, which warns residents of incoming rockets, was activated.
