One rocket fired from the Gaza Strip at the southern city of Sderot was successfully intercepted by the Iron Dome air defense system, the IDF says.

The military says another two long-range rockets were launched toward Ashdod, both impacting in the sea near the coastal city.

Sirens did not sound in Ashdod because the rockets were not heading toward populated areas.

It marks the first attack on Ashdod in more than a month, after the last attack was carried out on March 25.
