( Another mortar has been launched from Gaza into Israel, the first such attack since the cease-fire agreement that ended the latest conflict with Hamas on Aug. 26. 

No injuries or damage were reported from the mortar, which landed between Eshkol and Sdot Negev, the Jerusalem Post reported.

Hamas initially denied any knowledge of the launch on Tuesday, but later informed Israel that it had arrested the perpetrators of the attack, Israeli security officials said.
