A rocket fired from Gaza struck southern Israel, the third day in a row that rockets have been fired at Israel from the coastal strip.

Several rockets were fired from Gaza on Thursday morning, but only one landed in an open area in southern Israel. The rest exploded within Gaza's borders. No damage or injuries were reported.

On Wednesday morning two rockets fired from Gaza landed near Sderot as children were making their way to school on the first school day since the Passover holiday. Wednesday's attacks came after Israel on Tuesday night struck what the military called   "two extensive terror sites" in the northern Gaza Strip, following the firing of three mortar shells on Israel from Gaza on Tuesday,

Four rockets also were fired on Israel during President Obama's visit last month. One was found Tuesday crashed into the roof of a kindergarten building.

There have been a handful of rocket attacks from Gaza on southern Israel since an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire ended the Gaza conflict, Israel's Pillar of Defense operation, in November.
