A rocket fired from the northern Gaza strip landed in the Eshkol region early Tuesday morning. No damage or injuries were reported.
The incident comes after dozens of rockets and mortars were launched into Israel on Monday, most of which fell into open areas causing no damage, although one rocket, also fired into the Eshkol region, hit a petting zoo and caused the death of several animals.
Hamas claimed responsibility for the Monday attacks, which it said were in retaliation for a Sunday IAF airstrike, which killed one operative and wounded another, along with several civilians. The IDF claimed the men were senior Hamas operatives planning an attack.
Gaza-based terrorists have fired over 500 rockets and mortars at nearby Israeli towns and kibbutzim since the beginning of 2012.
