A rocket, Thursday night, was reported to have been fired from the Gaza Strip into the Negev desert area. Sirens sounded in Sderot settlement in the south, according to the PNN, and residents reported hearing explosions close to their communities. No injuries were reported.

Israeli forces said that they were looking for the landing site of the rocket. They were also quick to blame Hamas (Islamic Resistance Movement) for the rocket, claiming that Sderot settlement has long been the targeted by the movement.

A Israeli military spokesperson said that the rocket was fired from Beit Hanoun city, southern Gaza strip, accusing Hamas of breaking the ceasefire which was agreed after the last Israeli aggression during the summer, which killed more than 2,200 Gazans.
