Security forces arrived at the scene to investigate the incident.

The rocket attack comes after a mortar shell landed near several childrens' school buildings on Wednesday in a Sha'ar Hanegev regional council kibbutz, some 30 minutes prior to the students' scheduled arrival.

One of the buildings sustained light damage, and no injuries were reported. The school building impacted by the mortar was reinforced only at the roof and not at the side walls, like other protected buildings in the area.

Security officials decided to let school continue as usual.
