Sirens sounded in the cities of Ashdod, Ashkelon and in numerous villages in the Lachish and Hof Ashkelon regions, Arutz Sheva reported.

It was the first time a rocket has been fired from Gaza into Israel since the 50 days of fighting that took place in July and August 2014.

A Hamas official told The New York Times it wasn't clear who was responsible for firing the rocket.
