A rocket fired from the Gaza Strip landed in Israel, the army said Wednesday night.

There were no reports of injuries or damage in the attack, which was not preceded by a warning siren.

Initial reports suggested the rocket hit an open area in the Sha’ar Hanegev Regional Council bordering the Gaza Strip.

The IDF said it was searching the area for remnants of the rocket.

Israel has seen sporadic fire from the Gaza Strip, usually claimed by small Salafi groups engaged in a power struggle with Hamas, which is the de facto ruler of the strip.
