Palestinians in the northern Gaza Strip fired a Kassam rocket at Israel on Saturday morning, the third since both Israel and Hamas declared cease-fires on January 18. The rocket landed in an open area near a kibbutz in the Ashkelon area. There were no reports of casualties or damage in the attack. Prior to the rocket landing, 'Color Red' sirens sounded in the area, prompting residents to seek shelter. On Thursday, a rocket was fired at the Sha'ar Hanegev region, and on Wednesday another landed in the Eshkol region. Both rockets landed in open areas, causing no casualties or damage.
