GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The Hamas military wing announced on Wednesday that its fighters fired two missiles at an Israeli natural gas reception station in Ashdod, a city along the coast about halfway between Tel Aviv and northern Gaza.

The group said in a statement quoted by the Hamas-affiliated news site the Palestinian Information Center that it was the first time they had targeted a "Zionist gas station" in the Mediterranean.

The group said that the station was 26 kilometers away from Gaza.

The Ashdod natural gas reception station is linked to a number of offshore gas fields, including the large Tamar gas field offshore from Haifa.
