Rocket Sirens Sound in Southern Israel

Rocket sirens sounded in the southern Israeli regional councils of Merhavim and Eshkol near the Gaza border late on Wednesday evening. Residents in the communities reported hearing expolsions. No casualties were reported as investigations continue.

The Israel Defense Force's Spokesperson's Unit said that the Iron Dome missile defense systems atte mpted to intercept a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip, but it seems it failed to do so. The media in the Gaza Strip reported that Hamas was moving its positions out of fear of an Israeli response.

The Israeli military said earlier on Wednesday that it struck a Hamas outpost in southern Gaza after incendiary balloons were launched from the Strip toward Israel.
