A rocket launched from Gaza on Friday morning failed to cross into Israeli territory and landed in the Strip, an army spokeswoman said.

The launch set off sirens in the Eshkol Regional Council – the same region where a rocket hit last week, violating an August-26 cease-fire for the second time.

Israel and Hamas reached a deal three months ago to end seven weeks of fighting, a truce which has largely held.

On November 1st and September 16th shells fired from Gaza hit Israel near the southern border, causing no injuries or damage and prompting no Israeli retaliation.

Egyptian-mediated cease-fire talks, which were scheduled to resume in Cairo last month, have been put on hold amid an uptick in terrorism across northern Sinai.

A new date for the negotiations, which adjourned in September for Jewish and Muslim holidays, has yet to be announced.
