      Four Rockets on Ashkelon, Events Canceled

      Gaza terrorists fired four rockets at the city of Ashkelon in southern Israel on Thursday night. The Iron Dome defense system shot at least three of them before they could hit the populated areas at which they were aimed.

      The four rockets were fired in two volleys, approximately one hour apart.

      IDF soldiers have warned residents of southern Israel to stay near their bomb shelters. Events that were scheduled to take place in Ashkelon and nearby Ashdod this evening have been canceled.
