JERUSALEM (AFP) — A rocket fired by Palestinian militants from the Gaza Strip exploded in southern Israel on Saturday, but there were no casualties or damage reported, the Israeli army said.
It is the third rocket attack since ceasefires on January 18 brought an end to Israel's three-week onslaught against Hamas-ruled Gaza which left more than 1,330 Palestinians dead.
The rocket was fired from the north of the Gaza Strip and landed in a field near the city of Ashkelon, the army said.
An Israeli border soldier was also killed post-ceasefire with an IED. Hamas agreed to this ceasefire... and has already violated it.
