The Hamas terror group says it launched a large-scale rocket barrage on the southern Israeli city of Ashkelon early this morning in response to an IDF strike on a civilian apartment building near Gaza city.
At least one building in Ashkelon sustains a direct hit.
Hamas says in a statement it will “turn Ashkelon into hell” if the IDF continues to target civilian buildings in Gaza.
