Israel’s Iron Dome air defense system intercepted a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip on Saturday night, according to the military.

Sirens sounded in Kibbutz Nahal Oz, along the Gaza-Israel border, the Israel Defense Forces said in a statement.

No injuries or damage were reported.

It was the second such incident in as many weeks, coming after terrorists in Gaza fired a rocket at Israel on Feb. 1. That projectile was also downed by Iron Dome.

In late January, terrorists in the coastal enclave launched a barrage of rockets at Israeli communities, prompting retaliatory strikes against Hamas military assets.

The attack also comes on the heels of a terrorist attack in Jerusalem earlier in the day which left three people dead; Alter Shlomo Lederman, 20; Asher Menachem Paley, 8; and his brother, Yaakov Israel Paley, 6.
