A barrage of eight rockets was fired from the Gaza Strip at Ashdod, according to the IDF.

Two of the rockets were intercepted, while the rest apparently struck open areas, the IDF says.

There are no immediate reports of damage or injuries.

Hamas claims responsibility for the attack.

The last time rockets were fired at the southern coastal city, some 25 kilometers from the Gaza Strip, was on January 14.
