A missile from Gaza that hit Rafah in North Sinai Wednesday has left one woman injured, a source told the state-run news agency MENA.

The woman was transferred to a hospital for treatment after the missile landed in Rafah's Nafoura Square.

MENA did not give further details about the incident. The missile may have been fired by Hamas in Gaza at southern Israel.

Palestinian factions on Monday announced a ceasefire following bloody clashes at the border between Gaza and Israel. But some factions rejected the truce.

Israel launched air raids over Gaza last week in response to an attack on an Israeli bus in Eilat that killed eight Israelis. The air raids killed at least 15 Palestinians.
