On Monday the Color Red alert sounded across the Ashkelon Beach Regional Council after a rocket launching from Gaza was identified. However, no rocket landing sites were located.

Wednesday’s rocket fire on Israel took place as world leaders and celebrities are gathered in Jerusalem for President Shimon Peres’ 90th birthday celebrations.

Palestinians also fired rockets at Israel’s southern region during US President Barack Obama’s visit to the Jewish state some three months ago.
