Around 7:00 am Wednesday morning (today), a rocket was fired from the Gaza Strip in Israel's general direction. The Color Red/Tzeva Adom incoming missile alert was sounded in the area. The rocket appears to have crashed and exploded in open fields somewhere in the nearby Hof Ashkelon region. Times of Israel says there are no indications at this stage of injury to humans or property damage on the Israeli side. The timing of today's rocket means the danger of it hitting pedestrians or travelers in the morning rush hour, or a school or kindergarten, was considerable - and certainly no accident. The chances of it striking a military target in the area - small to insignificant.
