No Red Alert siren was sounded prior to explosion.

The rocket attack came after Palestinian reports that an Islamic Jihad terrorist was wounded by IDF fire in the northern Gaza Strip late Friday night.

One man was lightly injured in the incident near Beit Lahia, Palestinian news agency Ma'an reported citing an Islamic Jihad spokesman.

The IDF Spokesman's Unit said it was unaware of the incident in Gaza.

Last week Gazan terrorists fired at least eight rockets towards the Sha'ar Hanegev Regional Council. The salvo caused no damage or injuries as the rockets exploded in open fields in the northern Negev region .
