JERUSALEM (JTA) — A rocket fired from Gaza landed on a major road in southern Israel, causing significant damage.

The rocket fired Wednesday morning is the third incident of rockets fired on southern Israel from Gaza in the last five days. No injuries have been reported.

Israeli officials have said that since the formation earlier this month of a unity government between Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abba’s Fatah party and Hamas, the terrorist organization that runs the Gaza Strip, that any attacks emanating from Gaza are the responsibility of Abbas and his government.

Since the start of 2014, more than 140 rockets fired from Gaza Strip have hit Israel.
