JERUSALEM, (Reuters) – A rocket fired from the Gaza Strip landed in southern Israel on Friday but caused no injuries or damage, police said.
Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said the rocket struck near Sderot, a town often targeted by militants.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility.
Rocket attacks have become rare since an Egyptian-brokered truce took effect in June.
Earlier this week, Israel closed its border crossings with the Hamas-controlled territory, saying it did so in response to a similar attack.
