Rocket alert sirens sound in southern Israel in false alarm

BREAKING: Sirens warning of incoming rockets sounded in Yad Mordechai in southern Israel.

There have been no immediate reports of missiles launched into Israeli territory.

The IDF said the alarm was not caused by incoming rocket fire.

Apparently, the sirens were triggered by machine-gun fire towards IDF drones flying over Gaza.

Israeli fighter jets overnight bombed Hamas terror targets in Gaza after two rockets launched by Muslim terrorists towards southern Israel.

“Earlier tonight, a rocket and explosive balloons were launched from Gaza into Israel. In response, IDF aircraft just struck Hamas targets in Gaza, including a weapons manufacturing site and underground infrastructure”, the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit tweeted.
