Rocket sirens sounded Tuesday in communities near the Gaza border in southern Israel.

An Israeli military spokesperson later said the sirens were a false alarm.

This is the first time that rocket alert sirens have sounded in weeks as both Israel and Hamas refrained from military activities while trying to counter the spread of the coronavirus.
