The twitter account thought to be that of the Omar brigades said Sunday that the rocket fired at Ashkelon Saturday night was launched to protest the imprisonment of brigade members being held in Gaza prisons, as well as for those conducting hunger strikes in Israeli prisons.

According to Israel Radio, only hours before the rockets were fired, a Salafi leader called for continued rocket firings at Israel in order to break the relative calm.
