A rocket fired from the Gaza Strip Wednesday morning caused significant damage to a major road outside a southern Israeli community.

No injuries were reported in the attack on the Eshkol Regional Council.

It marked the second time this week that alarm sirens have sounded in the south near the Gaza Strip.

On Monday, a rocket was fired from the Strip in the direction of Ashkelon, but landed in Palestinian territory near the security fence, causing no damage or injury.

On Saturday, a rocket fired from Gaza exploded in open areas in the Sha’ar Hanegev region, causing neither injury nor damage.

Some 140 projectiles fired by militants in the Gaza Strip have hit southern Israel since the start of 2014, according to the military.

On June 1, two rockets from Gaza hit Israel, following which the Israeli air force launched raids on the Palestinian enclave.
