A rocket launched from the Gaza Strip landed in southern Israel's Eshkol Regional Council Monday morning, the IDF confirmed.

No injuries or damage were reported in the incident. Red alert sirens were not activated, as the projectile exploded in open territory.

Security forces were sweeping the area for remnants of the projectile.

Last Tuesday, residents in the south were on edge after the Iron Dome missile system fired an interceptor missile at what it thought was an incoming rocket.


Apparently there was no rocket, although residents of the South did hear an explosion, which is believed to have been the interceptor.

Previous to today's launch, the last confirmed rocket to be fired into Israel was on October 26th, when a rocket exploded in the vicinity of the Sha'ar Hanegev Regional Council, also causing no casualties or damage.
