Red Alert Rocket Siren Near Gaza Border Towns Prove to be False Alarm

The Jerusalem Post reports: The anti-rocket warning sirens that were activated in Israeli towns near the Gaza Strip frontier on Wednesday evening proved to be a false alarm, the IDF said.

The siren sounded in the Eshkol Regional Council, whose spokesman said earlier that residents reported hearing explosions.

The siren came some ten days after a flare up of violence on the Gaza border which saw Hamas operatives target Israeli soldiers in several mortar attacks, followed by Israeli reprisals with tank fire and air strikes.
