A rocket fired from the Gaza Strip overnight Friday-Saturday landed near the south Ashkelon port. No injuries or damage were reported in the attack.

Security forces were searching the area for the landing site, Israel Radio reported.

Last month, several rockets were fired from Gaza but warning sirens failed to sound in the Eshkol region of southern Israel. Rocket fire from the Strip has been sporadic since an eight-day Israeli campaign against Gaza terrorists last November.

On Friday, violent demonstrations flared up in several locations throughout Jerusalem, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, resulting in multiple Israeli injuries. This came hours after Hamas and Islamic Jihad called for a Third Intifada.

Friday marked the 13th anniversary of the outbreak of the second Palestinian Intifada against Israel’s rule in the West Bank and Gaza.
