A missile fired by Palestinian militants (search) struck a synagogue in a Jewish settlement in the Gaza Strip (search) during morning prayers Tuesday, causing extensive damage but no injuries, the Israeli military said.

A homemade Qassam rocket (search) hit the synagogue at the Netzarim settlement, the army said. Eight worshippers were treated for shock, but suffered no injuries.

Militants frequently target Jewish settlements in Gaza with Qassams, anti-tank weapons and mortars. A Thai worker died last week in a mortar attack on the settlement of Gani Tal.
