Three people were lightly wounded in Ashkelon early on Sunday when a rocket from Gaza scored a direct hit on an apartment in the southern Israeli city.

The victims were evacuated to the city’s Barzilai Medical Center, where they are listed as being in good condition.

Rocket alerts sounded shortly after 1 a.m. in the southern Ashkelon area, including the industrial zone.

Sirens sounded again in southern Ashkelon and the Sderot area on Sunday afternoon.

Earlier in the afternoon, Rafah terrorists targeted the Kerem Shalom area, with two launches from southern Gaza that were intercepted by the IDF aerial defense array, the military said. There was no damage or casualties from the attack.

The Kerem Shalom area has been targeted several times over the past week, including a strike on May 5 that killed four Israeli soldiers.

That rocket attack forced the closure of the primary crossing for humanitarian aid from Israel to Gaza. It was reopened on May 8, only to face more rocket attacks by Gaza terrorists.

Also on Friday evening, Hamas fired nine rockets from Rafah at Beersheva, hitting a playground.
