Rocket alert system rings out across Ashkelon as rocket from Gaza slams into southern part of the city.
An escalation in the shelling of southern Israel by Palestinian terrorists in Gaza continued on Sunday, when a Grad-type rocket fired from Gaza slammed into southern Ashkelon in the evening hours. Two residents suffered shock as a result of the blast, and were taken to a clinic for medical treatment.
A rocket alert system rang out across Ashkelon at around 7:20 p.m., local officials said.
A police spokeswoman told The Jerusalem Post on Sunday evening that bomb squad officers were searching for the location of impact.
“We believe this was a Grad rocket,” the spokeswoman said, adding, “No physical injuries or damages were reported.”
Earlier on Sunday, a mortar and two Kassam rockets were fired at southern Israel, security officials said.

The purpose of attacking Israel with “home made” rockets, its to trigger a response from the Jewish state.
Ad when Israel act in self-defense to stop the aggression, the whole World will be up in arms over Israeli attacks on “innocent Palestinians”.
The Grand rocket fired on Ashkelon, did not kill anyone. Hamas had more powerful rockets in their arsenal, missiles that can reach Tel Aviv. But Hamas knows that by using rockets that will create visual damage to the financial capital of Israel, will expose the terrorist organization. And such an attack will trigger an Israeli invasion of Gaza, that will remove the Hamas from power.
How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers! There will be great distress in the land and wrath against this people.
The Islamic power game is now to insult, frustrate and trigger Israeli anger over relatively harmless rocket fire. Shame on the World leaders, who support the Islamic agenda of destroying the state of Israel.
