JERUSALEM (CNN) -- Two rockets were fired Saturday morning from Gaza and landed in the southern Israeli city of Ashkelon, one of them hitting an educational institution and the other landing in an open area, the Israeli military said.

Five rockets have landed in Israel since Friday, a spokesman for the Israel Defense Forces said.

There have been no reports of casualties, the IDF said.

More than 100 rockets have been fired at Israel by Palestinian militants in Gaza since the two sides declared separate, tentative cease-fires in late January, the IDF said.

Israel also agreed to a cease-fire and pulled its troops out of Gaza in late January, ending a three-week military campaign that the Israeli military said was aimed at halting the rocket fire.
