Militants from the Gaza Strip fired a projectile into the Eshkol settlement of southern Israel on Monday, the Israeli army said, but there were no reports of casualties.

A military spokesman said it was not immediately clear if the object was a mortar shell or a locally-produced Qassam rockets.

Most Gaza militant groups agreed last month to cease firing, after weeks of increased rocket fire.

Rising tensions had prompted a warnings from the risk of a major new Israeli invasion of Gaza like the devastating 22-day offensive Israel launched in December 2008, which killed 1,400 Palestinians, more than half of them civilians, and 13 Israelis, 10 of them soldiers.
