A 60-year-old man was killed after a rocket slammed into his house in the town of Ashkelon, a coastal city in the Southern District of Israel, Superintendent Micky Rosenfeld, an Israel Police Foreign Press Spokesman, said on Sunday, Trend reported citing Sputnik.
"Rocket struck Ashkelon causing damage to houses. Man age 60 dies in hospital of injuries. Police units continue to respond to rocket attacks", he tweeted.
The incident comes as air-raid sirens sounded across southern Israel less than a day after militants in Gaza fired over 250 rockets and Tel Aviv responded with airstrikes.
