Jerusalem - A rocket fired from the Gaza Strip on Saturday hit an industrial zone in Sderot in southern Israel, setting a building on fire but without causing casualties, police said.
Spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld told AFP a second rocket struck open ground.
A military spokesperson said the building was a factory, and Rosenfeld said four workers were able to escape after the attack.
"Once the fire was extinguished, we began a search of the interior to determine whether there was anyone still there," he said.
Palestinians killed in Israeli air raid
The privately run Channel 10 television station said the building was a paint factory and that one employee was slightly injured and taken to hospital.
On Friday, two Palestinians in the Gaza Strip were killed in an Israeli air raid after a bomb exploded near troops manning Israel's security fence.
Rocket attacks from the coastal enclave late Friday were followed by more air raids overnight.
Of four early morning strikes on Gaza, two targeted "sites of terrorist activities" and the others hit arms depots and production facilities, a military spokesperson said.
Palestinian medics said the air raids that killed the two men struck near the home of Ismail Haniya, the former Hamas premier who stepped down on 2 June when Gaza and the West Bank set up a unity government.
2 100 buildings raided
Israel has put Hamas under intense pressure since the 12 June disappearance of three Israeli teenagers it says were kidnapped in the West Bank by members of the Islamist movement.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has urged the international community to press Palestinian President Mahmud Abbas to end his reconciliation with Hamas, citing the alleged kidnapping as proof that the movement's "terrorist" activities make it an unsuitable political partner.
Five Palestinians have been killed in the Israeli security sweep to find the teenagers and more than 400 have been arrested, mostly Hamas members.
Troops have also raided some 2 100 buildings in the West Bank, a military spokesperson said.
