Kassam hits Ashkelon industrial zone beer plant

Palestinian terror organizations fired six rockets from the Gaza Strip into Israel on Thursday, including one that hit a beer warehouse on the southern outskirts of the town of Ashkelon, the army and witnesses said. Five of the rockets landed in open areas, and there were no reports of casualties. The Kassam rocket that landed at the Carlsberg plant was the first rocket in two-and-a-half years to hit Ashkelon, a major city. It reportedly contained a payload of one-and-a-half kilograms of explosives.
