Gaza Rocket Fired, First in Two Months


Three rockets fired by Palestinian terrorists in Gaza early Wednesday morning landed in Palestinian territory. A siren was heard in Ashkelon and the surrounding area at around 5:40 a.m.

On Monday, air raid sirens went off in the Ashkelon area after a rocket-launching from Gaza was identified. However, no rocket landing sites were located, and no injuries or damage  was reported.

This marks the first time Gazan terrorists have attempted to strike Israel in nearly two months.

The Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) ordered the closure of the Kerem Shalom border crossing between Gaza and Israel.
