“The IDF will not tolerate any attempt to harm Israeli citizens or soldiers, and will continue to act with determination against any element seeking to unleash terror against the State of Israel,” the Spokesman’s Office added.

After being elected in 2009, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu declared that Israel would respond to every rocket attack targeting southern towns and villages.

Sunday’s projectile struck the Ashkelon Coast regional council, south of Ashkelon, ending over a month of calm on the southern border. No casualties or damage were reported from the attack.
