A radical Islamist Salafist group calling itself the Omar Brigades claimed responsibility for the Saturday night rocket attack fired at the Ashkelon region, Israel Radio reported Sunday.

Security forces said late Saturday that they had begun searching for the projectile, which apparently exploded in an open area.

The incident comes two days after the Israel Air Force struck Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip in retaliation for two Gazan rockets fired into the South.
