A picture taken from the southern Israeli city of Sderot shows rockets being launched from the Gaza Strip into Israel, on July 15, 2014
Most recent attack comes three days after four rockets launched against Israel

A rocket fired from the Gaza Strip landed in an open area near the southern town of Sderot, the Israeli army said late Monday night.

No injuries were reported in the attack, and none of the various terror organizations in the Gaza Strip claimed responsibility.

According to initial reports, no alarm sirens warning of rocket attacks were sounded, suggesting the rocket detection system installed around Gaza estimated that the rocket would land far from populated areas.

The attack came three days after Gaza based terror groups fired four rockets at southern Israel late Friday and early Saturday, breaking what had been over a month of tense calm.

All four rockets landed in open areas outside Sderot. There were no injuries or damage.

Following the weekend attacks, Israeli warplanes struck two Hamas military sites. Two children were killed by shrapnel from the explosions, according to Hamas.

    100% correct. bornintheuk....I agree. but will add that Egypt has been flooding the tunnels the Gazans have been digging, and drowning and suffocating hamas members,, not a single person on here has objected...Egypt also has demolished thousands of Egyptians homes alongside the Gaza strip.. many of the Egyptian house owners were completely innocent of any misdeeds or crimes, but still had their homes destroyed.nothing said about Egypts deeds..Israel destroys the homes of Known muslim terrorists murderers and gets bad write ups in the press and in the UN ...Two faced or what?

    Hamas is firing rockets into Israel again..every rocket that is fired into Israel by Hamas have no guidance systems,therefore are internationally recognised as a crime against humanity..When Israel retaliates with precisely aimed bombs onto Hamas Targets in Gaza, the Muslims are the first to cry out foul! I wonder what the Egyptians would do if Hamas sent over rockets with no guidance systems, and killed or injured innocent Egyptians? Probably bomb Gaza, without any prior warnings with leaflets, phone calls etc...So let the Israeli air force carry on with its proportional retaliation, bombing Hamas targets..Any collateral damage sustained by the Gazans will be the responsibility of HAMAS. Who are supposedly running the show in Gaza.. The solution is very simple.. A message to the people of Gaza stop sending rockets into Israel, and digging tunnels. Israel will stop sending it's warplanes to bomb Gaza...no rockets=no bombs.
