Gaza terrorists fired on southern Israel on Tuesday morning for the first time since the Pillar of Defense counter-terror operation in late 2012.

One rocket hit the city of Ashkelon, but did not cause injury. A second rocket apparently hit an open field near thecity.

Residents said they had no warningof the impending strike.

Defense experts say Gaza terrorists are apparently trying to show support with Arab rioters in Judea and Samaria. Riots broke out after the Palestinian Authority accused Israel of murdering a 30-year-old terrorist who died of a heart attack in Israeli custody.

Rocket fire is a blatant violation of Hamas’ agreement with Israel, which brought an end to Pillar of Defense.
