Hamas spokesman on Tuesday denied that the rocket that exploded in Ashkelon earlier in the day was fired from Gaza, Palestinian news agency Ma'an reported.

"This is only a lie. None of the Gaza Strip factions claimed responsibility for firing that missile, and the government is checking all the details," Ma'an quoted Ehab al-Ghussein as saying in a statement.

The Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades claimed responsibility for firing the rocket.
