Rocket barrage fired toward Ashkelon, Gaza border towns

Rocket sirens sound in the southern city of Ashkelon as well as the Gaza border communities of Zikim, Netiv Ha’asara, Karmia, Nirim and Ein Hashlosha, warning of incoming fire.

There are no immediate reports of injuries or damage.

The city and those communities have come under heavy fire over the past 11 days of fighting.

Last week, Ashkelon Mayor Tomer Glam said 25% of the residents of the city don’t have access to a protected area when rockets are fired.
