The Israel Defense Forces says one rocket was launched from the Gaza Strip at the southern coastal city of Ashkelon.

The military says the rocket landed in an open area, without causing any damage or injuries.

The Iron Dome air defense system was not used, as the projectile was not heading for a populated area.
