A rocket exploded in southern Israel on Tuesday, causing damage in the first such attack by militants in the Gaza Strip since a truce in November, Israeli police said.

The rocket caused some damage to a road near the city of Ashkelon but no injuries. The strike follows confrontations between Israeli forces and Palestinian protesters in the West Bank since the death on Saturday of a detainee in Israeli custody.
