Palestinian terrorists in the Gaza Strip fired a rocket on Monday night toward the southern Israeli city of Ashkelon. Israeli media reported that the projectile landed in open territory. No injuries or damage were reported.Ashkelon has about 120,000 residents.
Since 2005 when Israel pulled its people out of previously-Egyptian-controlled Gaza, terrorist groups there have indiscriminately fired some 8,000 rockets in the general direction of Israel. Not all made it over the fence.
