It struck an open area in the Hof Ashkelon Regional Council, the army said.

A rocket from Gaza aimed in the direction of the southern coastal city of Ashkelon Tuesday evening caused sirens to wail in the southern coastal city.

In response to the rocket that was sacked toward Ashkelon Tuesday night and landed in the Hof Ashkelon Regional Council, the IDF attacked two Hamas terror targets in northern Gaza.

Ryan Tannehill leaves Dolphins practice with apparent leg injury
In the non-contact mishap, Tannehill reportedly fell "awkwardly" while scrambling to the sidelines during a training camp drill. Tannehill's injury comes four days after Pro Bowl running back Jay Ajayi left practice early to be evaluated for a concussion.

The emergency director at the al-Shifa hospital in Gaza, Ayman al Sahbani, said that three of the injured were discharged after undergoing treatment. Two people were seriously wounded and another sustained light injuries, local media reported. One 26-year-old man was reported to be in critical condition with head wounds.

Israel has repeatedly said it holds Hamas, which controls Gaza, responsible for the firing and often retaliates by attacking Hamas positions.

Several hours later, an "Israeli Air Force aircraft targeted two Hamas posts in the northern Gaza Strip", the spokesperson said. In the summer of 2014 Israeli forces launched a massive military campaign against the region that claimed the lives of over 2,000 Palestinians and injured thousands more.
