The Israel Defense Forces says that one rocket was fired from the Gaza Strip toward southern Israel, and it was intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system.

No injuries or damage have been reported in the attack.

The rocket was the second fired from Gaza in two days, following yesterday’s capture of Palestinian security prisoners who has escaped from a high-security prison on Monday.

Yesterday’s rocket fire was also intercepted by the Iron Dome system. The IDF responded overnight with strikes on terror targets in the Gaza Strip.
