The Palestinian terror group Hamas reportedly test fired at least one long-range rocket into the Mediterranean Sea Monday.

Residents of southern Israel reported hearing a loud explosion following the test, Israel’s Channel 2 reported.

Hamas frequently launches rockets into the Mediterranean as it seeks to improve its capabilities ahead of any possible future conflict with Israel. In June, Hamas test fired dozens of short-range rockets inside the Gaza Strip.

Earlier this month, Islamic State-affiliated Salafi jihadist groups in Gaza fired a rocket on Sderot that narrowly missed Israeli homes. The Israeli Air Force, in response, hit several targets inside Gaza.
