Event

Rocket sirens sounded in Ashkelon late on Saturday, November 21, with local media sources reporting that a rocket impacted in an empty field near the city. Israeli security forces are investigating the alleged rocket strike. The incident comes hours after Israeli troops arrested two people attempting to cross from the Gaza Strip into Israel.

Disruption to transportation is likely in the vicinity of the incident as security forces continue their investigations. Israeli reprisal attacks in the Gaza Strip cannot be ruled out over the near term.

Advice

Those in the Gaza Strip and areas of Israel bordering the territory are advised to monitor developments and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities and their home governments. Some Western governments advise their citizens against all travel to the Gaza Strip.
