A rocket launched from Gaza on Friday landed in the Eshkol Regional Council in southern Israel, the army said.

The IDF had detected a projectile heading toward Israeli territory – the second such incident since Israel and Hamas reached a deal on August 26 to halt seven weeks of fighting. The cease-fire has largely been holding.

It was not immediately clear whether the rocket landed in Israel or within Gaza, as no sirens were heard in Gaza frontier communities.

Earlier this month, code red alerts sent tremors across the Gaza border, as residents in southern Israel fled to shelters for cover, a scene reminiscent of the 50-day war that dominated the summer.

The sirens turned out to be false alarms, likely triggered by rocket launching tests within the Hamas-controlled coastal enclave.

In mid-September, the first projectile since the late-August truce went into effect was fired from the Strip, landing in Israeli territory, near the southern border. There were no injuries or damages in the attack.

Egyptian-mediated cease-fire talks between Hamas and Israel – scheduled to resume in October in Cairo – have recently been postponed following a wave of terrorism that has torn through the Sinai Peninsula.

No new date for the negotiations, which adjourned in late September for Jewish and Muslim holidays, was announced.
