Two rockets were launched from the northern Gaza Strip a short while ago, one toward the southern coastal city of Ashkelon and the other at the border community of Mefalsim.

The Palestinian Islamic Jihad claims responsibility for the attack.

The military said both rockets were intercepted.

The Magen David Adom ambulance service says it is treating two people in good condition who fell over while running to shelters as sirens sounded in Ashkelon and several more towns near the Strip.

There are no reports of damage in the attack.
