( A rocket fired from the Gaza Strip exploded in the Ashkelon region of southern Israel on Sunday night, Israel Hayom reported.

No injuries or damage were reported. Warning sirens sounded in the area before the rocket exploded. Early last week, the Israeli Air Force struck two terror targets in Gaza in response to rocket fire from the Hamas-controlled coastal enclave.
