The Israeli military is reporting that Gaza militants have fired four rockets at southern Israel during President Obama’s second day of visiting the region.
Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld says one rocket exploded in the courtyard of a house in the border town of Sderot, while a second one landed in an open field.
The Jerusalem Post reported that the third and fourth rockets have landed in the Gaza Strip; no injuries have been reported in any hit areas.
The Post also added that the alert sirens went off in Sderot before the rockets hit.
President Obama visited Sderot when he was a Presidential candidate in 2008; the area is targeted by rocket attacks from the nearby Gaza Strip.
No group has claimed responsibility for Thursday's attack, which occurred as President Obama was in Jerusalem.
