Iron Dome launched, Code Red siren sounded in southern Israel following a false identification
Sirens sounded in the Sha’ar HaNegev and Sdot Negev regional councils.
The Iron Dome missile defense system was launched following a false identification of at least one rocket launched by Muslim terrorists from Gaza at towns in southern Israel.
“Following the previous statement regarding sirens sounded in southern Israel, the IDF’s Iron Dome aerial defense system launched one interceptor following a false identification. No launches were identified from the Gaza Strip at Israeli territory,” the IDF said in a statement.
