JERUSALEM – An Israeli military spokesman says that Palestinian militants fired a rocket from Gaza toward Ashkelon.
The spokesman said the rocket was fired early Saturday. He cannot be named according to military regulations. It is the first rocket fired from Gaza since Thursday.
Israeli forces and Gaza militants are meant to holding to a truce, but it has been breached several times.
The rocket exploded before landing, and nobody was injured. There was no claim of responsibility from Palestinian militant groups.
