Breaking News: A Hamas rocket landed this afternoon in an open field in the city of Ashkelon this afternoon, near a main road with heavy traffic. Reports from the city indicate that the Code Red missile alert system did not sound.

The attack occurred sometime after four o’clock as Hamas rocket fire continued unabated at Israeli civilians Monday. By 4 pm terrorists had fired more than 60 salvos over the Gaza border. The vast majority of missiles landed in open fields, and Iron Dome missile defense batteries downed four missiles.

Residents of Ashkelon sustained five Code Red sirens in just five minutes and an Iron Dome battery downed a rocket over the Hof Ashkelon Regional Council. Further south, 15 missiles were fired at the Sdot Negev Regional Council; five rockets were intercepted by Iron Dome missiles

In central Israel, false alarms sounded in Tel Aviv, Herzliya, Kfar Shmaryahu and Ramat Hasharon. In the Eshkol Regional Council, one man was lightly wounded by shrapnel, and a home and soccer field sustained light damage.

In response to the attacks, the Israel Air Force attacked terrorist targets near a mosque in Gaza City.
