JERUSALEM (AFP) -- Palestinian militants fired a rocket from the Gaza Strip on Thursday night which hit southern Israel without causing any damage, the army said.
A statement said the rocket hit open ground in the Eshkol area, adding: "No injuries or damage were reported."
A military spokeswoman said that more than 100 projectiles fired by militants in Hamas-ruled Gaza have hit Israel this year.
Last week, militants fired three rockets at southern Israel, the same day Israeli warplanes wounded six people in a "counter-terror operation" north of Gaza City.
Tha air raid came after rival Palestinian leaders from the West Bank and Gaza angered Israel agreeing a new reconciliation agreement.
