The Israeli military says at least one rocket was fired from the Gaza Strip toward Israel but that its missile defense system intercepted the projectile.
The "Iron Dome" has shot down hundreds of rockets launched by Gaza militants.
The rocket fire comes as Israel released the names of 26 Palestinian prisoners to be freed as part of a U.S.-brokered deal that led to the resumption of Mideast peace talks.
The prisoners to be released were jailed for the killings of Israelis before the beginning of Israeli-Palestinian peace talks in 1993.
