BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A rocket fired from the Gaza Strip hit an open area in southern Israel late Sunday, Israel's army said, with no injuries reported.

Israeli forces searched the area following the incident.

No Palestinian group claimed responsibility for the attack.

Israel's "Iron Dome" defense system on Saturday night intercepted a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip, the Israeli army said.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said that sirens sounded across southern Israel, before a single rocket was intercepted south of Ashkelon.

No injuries were reported, and she said she was not aware of any further rockets.

In response to the rocket fired, Israel's army launched airstrikes on the Gaza Strip early Sunday to target "two Hamas weapon manufacturing facilities in the northern Gaza Strip."

The strikes killed Nour Rasmi Hassan, who was five months pregnant, and her daughter, Rahaf Yahya Hassan, who was two-years-old.
