The Israel Defense Forces says troops have located the remains of a homemade rocket launched from the northern West Bank at Israel.

The IDF says the projectile was found in Palestinian-controlled territory, near the town of Silat al-Harithiya.

Army sappers have safely removed the rocket, the IDF says.

The rocket fire was claimed by a group calling itself the Al-Ayyash Battalion, which said it launched the rocket at the northern Israel town of Ram-On.
