Palestinian militants fired a rocket from the Gaza Strip into southern Israel on Sunday, causing damage but no injuries, a military spokesman said.

The rocket exploded in the Niram kibbutz near the city of Sderot and damaged several cars, causing two to catch fire, said the spokesman.

Palestinian militants have fired about 40 rockets and mortar rounds since Israel ended on January 18 its 22-day military offensive against the territory which caused 1,330 Palestinian deaths.

Israel, which launched its assault on December 27 with the stated aim of stemming rocket attacks, has warned of "the severest riposte" to any further rocket fire.
