JERUSALEM (AFP) - A rocket fired from the Gaza Strip struck Rishon LeTzion, some 15 kilometres (nine miles) southeast of Tel Aviv, the Israeli army said on Thursday, but there were no injuries or damage.

"There was a rocket that hit in an open field in the Rishon LeTzion area.

There were no injuries or damage," a spokesman said.

The city, Israel's fourth largest with a population of some 228,000, lies about 50 km north of the Gaza Strip.
