After several days of relative quiet, two rockets were launched from the Gaza Strip on Friday afternoon (Apr. 15) towards the cities of Ashkelon and Ashdod in Israel. Warning sirens were sounded in the region. The rockets apparently fell in open territory and there were no injuries or damage.

Over the past month, more than 100 projectiles have been fired from Gaza into Israel, including 12 Grad rockets and dozens of Qassam rockets and mortar shells.

The IDF (Zahal) will continue to act with steadfast determination against Hamas and any group that uses terrorism against the state of Israel. The IDF (Zahal) holds Hamas responsible for any terrorist acts emanating from the Gaza Strip.
