Palestinian militants fired a rocket at Israel Thursday just as a five-hour U.N. humanitarian cease-fire expired, the Israeli military said.
Gaza residents had crowded banks, vegetable markets and shops as they took advantage of the first respite from 10 days of fierce fighting.
The military says the rocket struck the city of Ashkelon at precisely 3 p.m. 1200 GMT, 8 a.m. EDT as the pause in military activity ended.
