JERUSALEM: A rocket was fired at Jerusalem on Tuesday but did not hit the city or cause any casualties, police said.

"There are no indications of a rocket falling within the city," a police spokesman said on Israel's Channel 2 television.

It was the second time a rocket has been launched toward Jerusalem since Israel's Gaza offensive began last Wednesday. Air raid sirens had not been heard in the city for decades.

Since the start of the conflagration, hundreds of missiles have been launched deep into Israel.

Israel has warned it will broaden its offensive in the Gaza Strip if Palestinian militants do not stop their rocket fire
