Palestinian terrorists operating out of the Gaza Strip fired a rocket into southern Israel on Monday morning.
The rocket landed in an open area south of the coastal city of Ashkelon causing no injuries or damage.
Israel’s Iron Dome anti-missile system detected the launch, but quickly calculated that the rocket would hit an uninhabited area, and so did not try to intercept.
In response, Israeli tanks opened fire an a Hamas base in northern Gaza, destroying it. Palestinian sources said there were no casualties on their side.
