GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A rocket from Gaza struck the Israeli city of Ashkelon on Thursday, immediately after a temporary five-hour ceasefire between Israel and Hamas ended.

Two rockets were launched from the Gaza Strip toward southern Israel, but the Israeli military reported that only one hit the town of Ashkelon.

Another rocket fired toward Eshkol caused sirens to go off in that city, but the rocket landed short and fell in Gaza, according to the military.

In the last 10 days, more than 1,200 Palestinian rockets fired from Gaza into Israel have killed one and injured around five.

Israel has killed 230 Palestinians and injured more than 1,600 during the assault.
