GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A rocket was fired from the Gaza Strip on Thursday, landing in an open area in southern Israel, according to the Israeli army.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma’an that sirens sounded in areas of southern Israel after the rocket was launched from the strip.

No damage or injuries were reported, and Israeli forces were searching the area following the strike.

The Israeli air force has carried out at least two air strikes in December so far, both in response to rocket fire from the besieged enclave.

Sporadic rocket fire has come from the Gaza Strip this year and has been met with retaliatory Israeli attacks, with the military making at least 50 incursions into the enclave since the start of 2015, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.

In October, a 2-year-old Palestinian and her pregnant mother were killed in an Israeli air strike on their home.
