A rocket fired from the Gaza Strip early Monday exploded in an open area in southern Israel, failing to cause either damage or casualties.

No warning siren was sounded in the Eshkol Regional Council alerting residents of the incoming rocket, possibly because its trajectory indicated it would not hit any community.

Police and security forces were searching the area for its remnants.

On Sunday, an Israeli woman was who was seriously wounded in a stabbing attack in the Gush Etzion region in the West Bank has died of her wounds.

Last Tuesday, a rocket fired from the Strip exploded near the border fence between Gaza and Israel, prompting the Israel Air Force to strike two targets in the Gaza in response.
