A number of rockets targeted the South Sunday morning after a several-hour reprieve from rocket fire overnight Saturday as the IDF targeted dozens of sites in the Gaza Strip. One rocket struck a building in Ashkelon Sunday morning, lightly injuring two people and causing serious damage to the building.

At least two other rockets hit Asheklon Sunday morning. Iron Dome intercepted one and the other fell into an open field.

Israel bombed terror targets in Gaza for a fifth straight day early on Sunday morning, launching aerial and naval attacks as the IDF prepared for apossible ground invasion [2], though Egypt saw¬†“some indications” [3] of a truce ahead.

The Israeli Navy bombarded targets from the sea and an air raid targeted a building in Gaza City housing the offices of local Arab media, wounding three journalists from al Quds television, a station Israel sees as pro-Hamas, witnesses said.
