A rocket launched from Gaza landed in open space across the border in Israel on Monday night.

No casualties or damage were reported. No rocket alarm sirens sounded.

On Friday, four rockets were fired into Israel. The Israeli air force responded by striking Hamas targets. Two Palestinian children were reportedly killed in the incident. Hamas responded to the incident by saying that "it's patience toward Israeli crimes has limits."

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday that Israel will respond to any incident of rocket fire from Gaza into Israel, adding that "Israel holds Hamas responsible for all rocket fire, and it's Hamas' obligation to prevent rockets from being fired."
