A migrant worker in the northern Negev was killed by a rocket fired by Palestinians from the Gaza Strip.

The rocket struck Moshav Nativ Ha’asara Thursday morning, killing a 30-year-old Thai man working in a hothouse. It was third rocket fired from Gaza in 24 hours.

Five rockets have struck southern Israel in the past two days, according to the Israel Defense Forces. No injuries or damages were reported from the attacks.

Thursday’s attack came an hour after Catherine Ashton, the EU’s high representative for foreign affairs and security policy, crossed into Gaza from Israel. Ashton condemned the rocket firing during her visit to Gaza, according to reports.

A Gaza group affiliated with al-Qaida, the Ansar al- Suna Brigades, claimed responsibility for the attack, as well as one that hit southern Israel last week, according to reports.
