Rocket sirens sounded in Gaza border communities on Sunday morning, but the IDF said that they were a false alarm.

The sirens sounded in the Eshkol region. The local authorities said that no explosions were heard in the area.

Two weeks ago, a rocket fired from Gaza exploded in southern Israel. No people were hurt in the attack and no damage was caused as the rocket fell in an open area. In retaliation, the Israel Air Force struck five military targets in Gaza. The IDF said the strikes targeted Hamas infrastructure.

Four people were reported wounded in the Israeli strike. According to Palestinian reports, the first strikes focused on Hamas positions west of the Nuseirat refugee camp in the Gaza Strip's center and east of Rafah, in the Strip's south.  Soon after, Palestinians reported an attack on a concrete factory north or Rafah.
