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

Rocket alerts sounded shortly after 1:00am in the area of southern Ashkelon, including the industrial zone.

On Friday evening, Hamas fired nine rockets from Rafah in southern Gaza at the Israeli city of Beersheba, hitting a children’s playground.
