The first rocket since the Nov. 21 Israel-Hamas ceasefire was launched from Gaza on Sunday night.

Israel Defense Forces (IDF) officials said the rocket, which fell inside Gaza territory and short of the Jewish state, does not signal a new escalation between the two sides, according to Army Radio.

A total of 1,500 rockets were launched at Israel last month during the IDF’s eight-day Gaza operation, Pillar of Defense.
