"Military officials hope Friday morning's Grad rocket in Ashkelon was lone incident which will not be followed by escalation in south, although two mortar shells land in Eshkol Regional Council several hours later. 'They have longer range missiles,' head of Home Front Command's southern district tells Ynet."

The explosion sounds which rocked Ashkelon on Friday morning took the southern city's residents back to the days of fear. Nearly a year and a half after Operation Cast Lead, eight people suffered shock as a Grad rocket landed in a populated area in the city.

According to an initial military estimate, the Hamas movement was not responsible for the rocket, which was fired from an open area near the northern Gaza Strip town of Beit Hanoun."
