Militants fire rocket into Israel, raising tensions

Attack prompted by recent death of jailed Palestinian

JERUSALEM — For the first time in more than three months, at least one rocket fired from the Gaza Strip landed in southern Israel early Tuesday morning, according to Israeli authorities, breaking a cease-fire that had been in place after eight days of intense violence between Israel and Gaza last fall.

The Israeli police and military reported that a single Grad rocket landed in a road outside the city of Ashkelon, causing damage but no injuries.
