Gaza militants fired three rockets into Israel Friday afternoon, marking the latest such attack since another salvo was launched Saturday, less than a week ago.

Only one of the rockets managed to enter Israel territory, falling a kilometer away from the border, in the Kissufim area, causing no injuries or damages.

The rocket did not trigger warning sirens.

Security officials told Army radio that the other two rockets reportedly landed inside Gaza. It is unknown if they caused any injuries or damages.

According to security sources, it is believed that the rocket-fire originated from a terrorist cell working independently from Hamas.

In the past, responsibility for such attacks has been taken by small groups of militants affiliated with the Islamic State, who is opposed to the current rulers of the coastal Palestinian enclave.
