Rocket sirens sound in Ashkelon, southern Israel

Rocket sirens have been activated in the Gaza periphery, including the city of Ashkelon, the first launches from Gaza in some 20 hours.

There is no immediate word on any impacts.

Hamas rocket fire has diminished considerably in recent weeks. It is believed to be stockpiling rockets for a long war, but also has difficulty in carrying out attacks amid the IDF’s ground operation.
