Return of the rockets

For the first time since Operation Pillar of Defense concluded in November, a rocket from Gaza slammed into Ashkelon this morning. No one was hurt but there was damage to a road.
The rocket failed to trigger an air raid siren, and the IDF is investigating why one did not go off.

"An explosion was heard in the Ashkelon region experts searched areas experts and found one rocket that struck, damaging a road but causing no injuries," Rosenfeld said.

There were no immediate claims of responsibility by any groups in Gaza, where Egyptian mediators helped achieve a truce after eight days of punishing Israeli air strikes amid rocket attacks from the coastal territory in late November.

The attack came after the death on Saturday of a Palestinian detainee in Israeli custody which triggered protests in the occupied West Bank.
Note no mention of Iron Dome (which I don't believe is dependent on a Code Red warning) either. Hmmm.
