Palestinian militants fire rocket into Israel
Palestinian militants late Tuesday fired the first Qassam rocket into Israel in more than a month, an Israeli Army spokeswoman said, according to dpa.
The rocket was fired from the northern Gaza Strip and there were no reports of any damages or injuries.
The Army said it was the first such attack since September 14. Israel and the militants in the Gaza Strip agreed to a cease fire in mid-June and the number of rocket attacks has fallen since then.
Defence Minister Ehud Barak after the attack closed the border crossing between Israel and the Strip.
