The Times of Israel reports: A rocket fired from the Gaza Strip struck an open field south of the coastal city of Ashkelon on Wednesday night, causing neither injury nor damage, the army said, the second attack in a week.

The alert siren did not go off, as the rocket was headed toward an unpopulated area. The projectile struck the Hof Ashkelon region shortly after 11:00 p.m. on Wednesday, the Israel Defense Forces said.

Israeli troops began searching the area to locate the rocket, the army said.
