Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip fired a Kassam rocket into Israel Saturday evening, causing warning sirens to be heard in the Ashkelon region.

The rocket fell south of the city. It did not cause any damage and there were no casualties reported in the incident.

On Thursday night the Israeli air force struck five militant targets in the Gaza Strip, after three rockets were fired into Israel from the Palestinian coastal territory.

The IDF confirmed it had attacked four targets in the northern Strip and one in its center, saying it had confirmed hitting them all. Palestinian officials said several Hamas outposts were hit, Israel Radio reported.
