Rocket alert sirens sounded in Israel’s Gaza border communities Wednesday with reports of at least one projectile falling inside the Israeli city of Sderot.
The rocket landed next to an elementary school, according to the Ynet news site.
The Magen David Adom spokesperson said that there were no physical injuries after the rocket fell on a residential street, however medics were treating some people on the scene for shock, some of whom would be evacuated to health care facilities for additional treatment.
There was no damage reported but photos of the impact point showed scorch marks on the street and melted fragments of the rocket.
Sderot, located in southern Israel, lies less than a mile, about 840 meters from the Gaza border.
It remains unclear who fired the rocket, and there have not yet been any claims of responsibility. Both Hamas and other splinter Islamic organizations have launched rocket attacks into Israeli territory in the past.
Israel says that it hold Hamas responsible for all projectile fire coming from its territory.
