      The Iron Dome anti-missile system successfully intercepted a rocket fired by Gaza terrorists at Ashdod Thursday evening.

      No one was hurt and no damage was caused. Sirens went off at Ashdod, Ashkelon, Yavneh and northern the Lachish area.

      The rocket was the third fired by Gaza terrorists Thursday. A Grad rocket was fired at Be'er Sheva in the morning hours. It was successfully intercepted by Iron Dome, and it caused no injury or damage.

      Earlier, another rocket fell in an open space in the Sdot Negev region. No one was hurt and no damage was caused.
