One rocket launched from the Gaza Strip at Sderot was intercepted by the Iron Dome, the IDF says.

There are no reports of injuries.

Sirens had sounded in the city.

The military says the rocket was launched from the Jabaliya area, where the IDF is carrying out an operation.

The rate of rocket fire on southern towns has steadily increased in recent days as the IDF launches new operations against Hamas.
