The AGILE satellite detects a renewed enhancement in gamma-ray activity from the FSRQ PKS 2032+107 since the recent GeV flare reported by Fermi and AGILE (ATel #7453, and ATel #7457). The source activity was confirmed also by the Swift follow-up observations (ATel #7460).

A maximum likelihood analysis of the AGILE-GRID data for the integration period between 2015-06-01 11:30 UT and 2015-06-03 11:30 UT yields a detection with a flux F=(2.8 +/- 0.9) x 10^-6 ph/cm^-2/s^-1 (E > 100 MeV).

This measurement was obtained with AGILE observing a large portion of the sky in spinning mode. Multifrequency observations of the source are strongly encouraged.
