ASHKELON, Israel (AFP) -- Israel's Iron Dome short-range missile defence system on Thursday intercepted a rocket fired from Gaza for the first time over the city of Ashkelon, an AFP correspondent said.

A military source confirmed the rocket had been brought down by the unique multi-million-dollar system, which came into operation on March 27, the first time a short-range interceptor has been deployed anywhere.
