This is the fourth rocket fired from Gaza at Israeli civilians this week.
Additional Code Red sirens sounded in Zikim, Ashkelon Southern Industrial Zone, Karmia, Netiv HaAssara, Ashkelon shortly after 11 p.m.

On Tuesday, a barrage of rockets was fired by Muslim terrorists in Gaza towards the city of Sderot. In response, Israeli fighter jets carried out retaliatory strikes targeting terror infrastructure in Gaza.
The latest escalation with Gaza began two weeks ago when an Israeli strike eliminated a top Islamic Jihad terrorist, Baha Abu al-Ata and brought a wave of rocket fire into Israel in response.
