"No injuries have been reported". Israel considers Hamas a terrorist organization.
The United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) announced Sunday it was suspending a senior employee in Gaza after discovering he was an active member of the ruling Hamas terrorist organization.
A Kassam rocket was sacked at Israel from Gaza by Arab terrorists overnight Sunday.
On February 6, a rocket was launched at Israel's southern Mediterranean coast, in the Hof Ashkelon region, striking an open field.
However, Israel has broken this truce several times, and the Gaza fishermen and farmers are attacked by IOF on an nearly daily basis.
Meanwhile, a state-level report on Israeli government decision-making during the 2014 conflict - expected to be released this week - is rumored to be highly critical of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's handling of the operation.
The cross-border fire came after the Israeli army targeted the besieged coastal enclave with multiple airstrikes in two instances this month, which the army said came in response to rocket fire from Gaza that caused no injuries to Israelis.
The IDF has yet to respond to the attack.
Palestinian authorities say three workers have died after inhaling toxic gas in a smuggling tunnel beneath Gaza's border with Egypt. Three of them were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system, while the fourth landed in an open field.
