13-Nov-12: Reports of Ashdod rocket explosions

From the coastal city of Ashdod (Israel's sixth-largest with a population of 210,000) there are reports in the last few minutes - around 6:00 am Tuesday morning -  of two explosions from incoming rockets, but according to one eye witness no Tzeva Adom warning ahead of time. (If you don't know the sound, it's worth hearing just once - click to view and hear a brief video.)

We are checking now in the hope of being able to report that once again there are no casualties and no serious damage. Meanwhile the two Israel/Gaza border crossings - Erez and Kerem Shalom - are said to be re-opening this morning [Ynet] because of the "lull".
