Army: Rocket fired from Gaza into Israel

Dec. 11, 2010 9:17 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 12, 2010 5:22 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (AFP) - A rocket fired from the Islamist-run Gaza Strip hit southern Israel on Saturday without causing casualties or damage, a military spokesman said.

The projectile "exploded on open ground," he said, a day after a mortar round or rocket fired from the Palestinian territory exploded, again without causing casualties or damage.

Gaza-based Palestinian militants have fired some 200 rockets and mortars into Israel this year. Eight attacks have been recorded this week.

In December 2008, Israel unleashed a 22-day offensive against the territory's Hamas rulers in a conflict that cost the lives of 1,400 Palestinians, mostly civilians, and 13 Israelis, 10 of them soldiers.

The stated aim of "Operation Cast Lead" was to halt near daily rocket or mortar attacks on Israel by Palestinian militant groups.

On Friday, two Palestinian teenagers were killed in a blast in Gaza City thought to have been caused by an unexploded Israeli tank shell left from the war.
