Fire resumed: Rocket hits Ashdod

Despite reports of imminent ceasefire in Gaza, rocket fire still threatening south. Sirens heard in Ashdod, Ashkelon Wednesday evening, one rocket lands in Ashdod

While talks on a ceasefire are being held in Egypt, rockets from Gaza continue to pound Israel's south. Sirens were sounded in Ashkelon and Ashdod Wednesday evening, and one rocket exploded in Ashdod.


No injuries or damage were reported in the attack.


Thirteen rockets have been fired at Israel since the morning hours.


The latest barrage was recorded around noon, as two rockets landed near Ashdod and Yavne, one in the Beersheba area and one in the Sdot Negev Regional Council, where a hothouse suffered damage.


The attacks began shortly after 10:30 am, when two Qassams landed in open fields in the Eshkol Regional Council. Another rocket was fired on the area shortly afterwards, and three others landed in the Sha'ar Hanegev Regional Council and near Ashkelon about an hour later.


No injuries were reported in any of the incidents.


Meanwhile, IDF forces continued operating inside the Gaza Strip. A drop in the number of rockets fired from the Strip has been registered in recent days.
