Two rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip at the southern city of Sderot a short while ago, according to the IDF.

One rocket struck a road in the city, causing slight damage, the municipality says.

The IDF says the second projectile was intercepted by the Iron Dome air defense system.

One more rocket was fired toward the coastal city of Ashkelon, which was also shot down, the IDF says.

The Palestinian Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility for the attack.

There are no reports of injuries.
