A red alert sounded in the Hof Ashkelon Regional Council early Monday afternoon after a rocket launched from within Gazan territory was detected.

The Kassam missile landed in an open area and did not cause injuries or damage.

The attack came a day after an Israeli Air Force strike hit a Palestinian terrorist allegedly responsible for multiple attacks against Israel, in the central Gaza Strip.

There have been 33 rocket attacks on Israeli towns and territory since the beginning of 2014, the IDF noted on Sunday.

Sunday’s strike followed a week in which at least four rockets were fired at Israeli towns.
