A picture taken from Gaza city shows a long-range J-80 rocket being launched from the Gaza strip towards Israel on July 12, 2014 following an advance warning of the attack by Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas.

The Jerusalem Post reports: A rocket alert siren sounded  in the Eshkol Regional Council on the border with the Gaza Strip on Thursday.

The IDF stated that no rockets were known to have fallen in Israeli territory.

The siren came some two weeks after the IDF announced that it had located a tunnel infiltrating into Israeli territory from the Gaza Strip.
