A rocket was fired from Gaza into Israel at about 8 p.m. on Motzei Shabbos.
The rocket landed in an open area near the town of Nachal Oz and b’chasdei Hashem, there were no reports of injuries.
Residents of the area reported hearing a powerful explosion.
The rocket fire, the first in a month, comes after the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) and Hamas terror groups last week threatened retaliation against Israel for the elimination of two senior PIJ terrorists in Jenin.
