23-Dec-13: Rocket fire into southern Israel
Times of Israel reports that the Code Red (Tzeva Adom) early-warning alert, indicating one or more incoming missiles from the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip, was sounded in several southern communities during the early hours of Monday morning. As of this hour, IDF forces are searching the area for signs of damage. The landing is thought to have been in open territory near Israel's southern coastal city of Ashkelon. Several recent rocket firings in Israel's direction during the past month have fallen short inside the Gaza Strip probably doing damage that - since it is Arab-on-Arab - goes mostly unreported.
