The 'color red' alarm has sounded in Ashkelon for the first time. No details of casualties or damage are available. A rocket was fired at Sderot as well. YeshaNews reported that the 'color red' alarm in Ashkelon was just a test of the system.
Terrorists in northern Gaza fired two rockets at Sderot earlier Friday morning. One of the rockets fell inside the town and caused damage to some houses. The second fell in an empty field outside the town. Arab sources said that the IDF attacked a house in the Jabalya neighborhood in northern Gaza and that an Israeli aircraft fired targets at Beit Lahiya, also in northern Gaza.
The IDF said these were attacks on "Kassam launching grounds."
