A number of rockets were reportedly fired into the Israeli settlement of Ashkelon, tonight, the Spokesperson for the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) claimed.
“A short while ago, sirens sounded in the Hof Ashkelon Regional Council. The Iron Dome Aerial Defense System intercepted a rocket launched at Israel. No injuries reported,” the spokesperson wrote on Twitter.
The IDF spokesperson added that at least one of the rockets was downed by the Iron Dome defence system.
The IDF spokesperson said on late Monday the Israel Defense Forces have attacked the military posts of the Palestinian Hamas movement in the southern part of the Gaza Strip in response to the rocket shelling.
