Gaza Militants Fire Two Rockets Into Israel

A policeman holds the remains of a rocket launched by Palestinian militants from the Gaza Strip which hit the coastal city of Ashdod on March 24.
Israel's army says Gaza militants fired two rockets into southern Israel overnight.

A spokeswoman told the Associated Press that no one was injured in the March 26 attacks, but one rocket damaged a house.

Gaza militants have bombarded southern Israel this week in the heaviest barrage since an Israeli military campaign in 2009 tried to stop years of rocket fire from Gaza.

Also this week, Israeli shelling missed its target and killed four Gaza civilians. A Jerusalem bus bombing on March 23 killed a British tourist and wounded dozens of Israelis.
