A Israeli military spokesman said a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip slammed into southern Israel on Saturday morning, causing no injuries or damage.

The projectile hit an open field in the Hof Ashkelon Regional Council, and forces are searching the area to find its remnants, according to the spokesman.

It was the third time that militants from the besieged Palestinian enclave launched rockets toward Israel over the past month.

Earlier in March, Palestinian gunfire hit an army bulldozer near the security fence, hours after a rocket exploded in an open area in the regional council Hof Ashkelon, causing no damage. Israel’s air forces retaliated within minutes, demolishing two Hamas posts in northern Gaza Strip.

In February, Israel hit Gaza with artillery and air strikes, wounding three, after a rocket hit a swath of Israeli territory, without causing injuries or damage.

The rockets were believed to be launched by a Salafi group in Gaza, an ultra-conservative Sunni movement, but Israel’s military holds Hamas responsible for the fire. Enditem
