Rocket fired from Gaza Strip, Israeli police say

Text by News Wires

Latest update : 2013-02-26

A rocket fired from the Gaza Strip has landed in Israel, damaging a road but causing no injuries, police sources said. It is the first such rocket attack from the Hamas-ruled Palestinian territory since November.

Israeli police say a rocket has been fired from the Gaza Strip into Israel. A police spokesman says there was damage to a road but no injuries.

It’s the first such rocket from the Palestinian territory to land in Israel since Israeli-Gaza fighting last November.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld says the remains of a rocket were found on Tuesday near the city of Ashkelon, in southern Israel.

There have been protests throughout the West Bank in recent days in support of Palestinians held in Israeli jails. This weekend, one Palestinian prisoner died under disputed circumstances, prompting more protests.

A statement from the Palestinian president’s office says President Mahmoud Abbas has instructed Palestinian security officials to preserve order in the West Bank, but he blames Israel for the violence.
