Rocket alarm sirens heard in Israel's Eshkol region near the Gaza border on Sunday morning were later confirmed to be a false alarm.

The regional council had earlier said that no explosion was heard and that no injuries or damage were sustained in the area.

Last month, militants in Sinai fired a rocket at the Eshkol region moments after Israel closed its southern border with Egypt for fear of an imminent attack. The rocket hit a greenhouse in a southern Israeli community near the Egypt and Gaza borders.
