No injuries have yet been reported in the latest rocket fire from the Gaza Strip on Ashdod, Ashkelon and Beersheba, including at locations hit by rockets or shrapnel, medics say.
In Ashkelon, a United Hatzalah spokesperson says there are no injuries after a rocket struck a car next to a building in a residential neighborhood, sending shrapnel flying into several apartment buildings.
Footage from the street shows one car on fire and severe damage to several others.
