Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigade Says It Launched Rocket

The Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigade in Gaza said it was behind the launching of a rocket on Ashkelon, Tuesday morning. The terror group said the rocket was of the M-175 variety, similar to the ones launched in the direction of Jerusalem, last fall, in response to Israel's Pillar of Defense counter-terror campaign against Gaza terrorists.

Nobody was wounded as a result of the rocket, which touched down in the southern part of the southern Mediterranean port.
