Sirens rang out in the Hof Ashkelon area on Sunday morning sending Israelis running for shelter. The IDF said no rockets fell inside Israel and later determined that the sirens had falsely been alarmed.

Sunday's occurrence comes after multiple recent rocket launchings toward Israel by terrorists in Gaza have broken the relative quiet since last August's cease-fire ending a 50 day conflict between Israel and Hamas.

Last Tuesday, Gazan terrorists fired a single rocket at southern Israel, prompting a retaliatory strike on a Gaza rocket launcher by the Israel Air Force.

The IDF said the rocket fell in an open area in the Yad Mordechai region. No injuries or damage were reported.
