Sderot, in Israel, is regularly hit by rocket fire from Gaza
Palestinian militants in Gaza have fired a rocket into Israel.

This continues a series of attacks they say are in retaliation for Israeli incursions in the West Bank.

The Qassam rocket landed near a nursery school in the town of Sderot, in southern Israel. There were no reports of casualties.

Islamic Jihad said it carried out the attack. Three of the militant group's members were killed on Friday in a raid by Israeli troops in the West Bank.

Overnight, the Israeli army said it had detained six suspected Palestinian militants across the West Bank.

The Israeli army says a total of 11 rockets have been fired from Gaza since Friday.
