Jerusalem, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 22nd Nov, 2020 ) :A rocket was fired at Israelfrom the Gaza Strip on Saturday evening, the army said, shortly after warning sirens sounded in the southern Israeli city of Ashkelon.
The army statement gave no further details, but emergency services said they had no notification of anyone wounded and Israeli media said the projectile fell on open ground.
The latest reported firefrom the Hamas-ruled Palestinian enclave came after two rockets were fired from the coastal strip into neighbouring Israel in the early hours of last Sunday.
There were no casualties or damage in that attack. Israel struck back with fighter planes, helicopters and tanks, hitting what the army said were Hamas targets in the enclave last Sunday.
There was no claim of responsibility for the November 15 rocket fire, but Israel routinely holds Islamist group Hamas responsible for all attacks originating from its territory.
Hamas, considered a terrorist group by Israel, seized control of Gazafrom the rival Palestinian movement Fatah in 2007 in a near civil war.
Since then Hamas has fought three devastating wars with Israel in the coastal territory where about two million Palestinians live.
Israel has since maintained a crippling blockade on the Gaza Strip, to isolate Hamas.
