Militants in the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip fired a rocket into Israel early on Thursday, with the projectile landing inside the Jewish state without causing casualties or damage, the army said.

"A rocket fired from Gaza fell this morning in Israel without causing injuries," a spokeswoman said.

Israel launched a deadly offensive into Gaza in late December in response to rocket fire from the Palestinian enclave ruled by the Islamist Hamas movement.

The 22-day war ended with mutual ceasefires by Israel and Hamas on January 18 and since then the border between the territory and Israel has remained largely quiet, despite occasional violations by both sides.
