Emergency sirens went off in the southern coastal city of Ashdod on Tuesday evening at around 10:48 p.m.

Initial reports from residents said that two missiles were fired at the city. One was intercepted by an Iron Dome missile over nearby Ashkelon, the IDF said.

No injuries or damage have been reported.

The rocket fire from Gaza came hours after Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon toured Gaza Belt communities and spoke about the security situation in the south.

Ya’alon said that Israel had succeeded in deterring Hamas in the course of Operation Protective Edge last year.

“A year has passed since Operation Protective Edge, and there is no doubt that here, beyond the fence, in the Gaza Strip, Hamas, the body that controls Gaza, has been deterred, and faces internal challenges, including ISIS terrorists and others who sometimes fire [at Israel] from the Gaza Strip to challenge [Hamas].”
