    Two rockets landed earlier in open fields and one was reported to have been intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system causing no damage or injuries.
    There was no immediate Israeli reaction, although the last time Gaza factions fired into Israel, 10 days ago the rocket fire prompted an IDF raid on military targets in Gaza.
