An Israeli man was killed overnight after a rocket from the Gaza Strip struck the city of Ashkelon, police and media said Sunday.
Police said the man died from critical wounds suffered in the rocket strike after being taken to hospital. Israeli media identified the man as Moshe Agadi, 60, and said the rocket hit the Israeli's home in the city near the Gaza border.
He was the first Israeli killed in the flare-up of violence that began Saturday.
More than 250 rockets have been fired at Israel from the Gaza Strip since Saturday, Israel's military says, and Israel has responded with air and tank strikes.
