Two Israeli women were lightly wounded in Ashkelon on Tuesday afternoon by a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip.

Paramedics treated the two, said to be in their sixties, for shrapnel wounds after a rocket hit a residential building in the city, according to MDA. In addition, two children and one adult received treatment for anxiety and shock. The women were later taken to Ashkelon’s Barzilai Hospital.

According to police, officers were “working to isolate the impact scene and searching for [rocket] remnants.”
