A rocket fired from the Gaza Strip by Palestinian militants exploded in southern Israel, but caused no damage or injuries, a military source said.

The rocket exploded in an industrial zone in the Israeli city of Ashkelon, the source said.

Rocket attacks have occurred despite a ceasefire declared January 18 after a three-week Israeli offensive on the Gaza Strip that killed 1,330 Palestinians.

Yesterday, Israel shelled southern Lebanon after a rocket slammed into its territory in a tit-for-tat exchange of fire across their tense border, sources on both sides said.
