August 31, 2012 | 9:26 am

A rocket fired from the Gaza Strip into Israel hit a house near Sderot on Friday morning, but no one was injured.

Israel Radio reported the same house had sustained a direct hit in the past.

Friday’s hit caused some damage to the property, according to the report. Rescue forces treated one person for shock.

The area has seen several incoming rockets in the past few days. The Israel Defense Forces struck munitions depots in the Gaza Strip on Tuesday in response to the rocket fire.

Hamas and other terrorist groups have fired more than 450 rockets from Gaza into southern Israel since the beginning of the year, according to the IDF Spokesman’s Office.
