Qatar’s al-Jazeera network are reporting that a missile fired from the Gaza Strip has struck the south of the Israeli city of Ashkelon.No injuries have been reported, and at the time of publishing no group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Ashkelon was first struck by missile fire on March 1st 2008, and has since been the subject of fire on occasion, leading to a small number of serious injuries, and a greater number of minor injuries.

This attack follows several months of relative calm in the Gaza Strip, with recent focus coming on the claims by the state of Israel that it has eased it’s siege on the the coastal enclave.

Items prohibited from entering Gaza still number over 1,300, including construction materials such as concrete, vital for rebuilding the infrastructure of the region following the wide spread devastation during Israel’s three week assault, code named Operation Cast Lead, that left over 1,400 dead; 926 of whom were civilians.
