Two rockets from Gaza slammed into southern Israel on Thursday morning, as U.S. President Barack Obama prepared to leave Jerusalem for Ramallah for meetings with top Palestinian Authority officials.

One of the rockets landed in the court a house in the city of Sderot, but no casualties were reported, Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said.

A police disposal expert was still searching for the other rocket, Rosenfeld said.

Obama is on a four-day trip to Israel and the West Bank, his first since assuming office.
