Israel strikes Gaza targets after rocket falls on Ashkelon

JERUSALEM (JTA) — Israel struck five targets throughout Gaza hours after a rocket fired from Gaza landed near the southern coastal city of Ashkelon.

Direct hits were confirmed on what the Israel Defense Forces called in a statement “terror sites.”

The attacks occurred late on Saturday night. Earlier, on Saturday evening, a rocket fired from Gaza landed in an open area south of Ashkelon.

It was the fifth rocket to hit Israel over the weekend. Israel’s Air Force also attacked five terror targets in Gaza early Friday morning, following a rocket attack Thursday night.
