BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A rocket fired from Gaza hit a petrol station in southern Israel on Friday, causing a huge explosion and injuring three people, the army and medics said.

"A barrage of rockets was fired at Ashdod, one of which hit a gas station causing massive damage," a statement from the army said.

Northern Israel was also hit by a rocket fired from Lebanon Friday, causing troops to hit back with artillery fire over the border, the Israeli army said.

The rocket crashed into a field near Kfar Yuval, between Metula and Kiryat Shmona at Israel's northernmost tip, a spokeswoman told AFP.
