Hamas begins a major missile attack on Ashkelon

Hamas fired intense missile barrages at the city of Ashkelon inside Israel, after giving residents until five o'clock on Tuesday evening to evacuate the city.
A statement by the Al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, said that it launched continuous rounds of bombing of Ashkelon in response to the "displacement of civilians" in Gaza.
The statement added: "If the Israeli army does not stop the policy of displacing civilians, the Al-Qassam Brigades will continue to bomb the city of Ashkelon until it is displaced, and then it will move on to displace another city."Last Sunday, Al-Qassam bombed sites in Ashkelon with 100 missiles.
Last Saturday, a video clip showed burning cars in Ashkelon, as a result of rockets falling, and buildings that caught fire appeared in a number of areas of Israel, as residents fled.
