Channel 2 reported that two rockets from the Gaza Strip were fired into open areas in Israel on Monday morning,  claiming no injuries or damage was caused.

An IDF Spokeswoman denied the report, however, claiming no rockets had been fired into Israel on Monday.

Heightened tensions are expected Monday as former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's funeral will take place only six miles from the border with Gaza, with thousands expected to attend.
