BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- A rocket fired from Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula late Monday morning landed in southern Israel, the Israeli army said.
An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma’an that a “projectile” hit a greenhouse in the Eshkol regional council, causing no injuries.
Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said that bomb disposal experts had searched the area and that police units were at the scene.
, two rockets launched from the Sinai Peninsula hit an open area in Eshkol, similarly causing no injuries.
The Sinai Peninsula has been the site of ongoing violence between Egyptian forces and armed militant groups, which has increased since Egyptian President Abd al-Fattah al-Sisi took power from Muhammad Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood in 2013.
