Palestinian militants on Friday fired a mortar round from Gaza into southern Israel, causing no casualties or damage, the Israeli military said.

The shell landed in an empty field in the southern Eshkol settlement, a military spokesman said.

On December 18, Israeli warplanes hit central Gaza, killing five militants as they were about to launch a rocket attack, according to the army and witnesses.

Hamas movement that controls Gaza has observed a de facto truce with Israel since the end of a 22-day offensive by the Israeli on the strip in January 2009 aimed at halting rocket fire from militants.
