A third rocket had been fired on Gaza border communities from north of the Gaza Strip, Palestinian media reported on Friday evening.
Earlier on Friday a spokesperson for the Eshkol Regional Council said one rocket landed in an open area and no casualties were reported. A second rocket that was allegedly fired did not reach Israel.
The rocket fire came after the IDF reinforced its Iron Dome missile defense batteries on Friday in southern Israel in anticipation of possible rocket fire from the Strip following the death of a Hamas member by IDF fire on Thursday.
