A code red siren was sounded Thursday afternoon in the Gaza periphery town of Nahal Oz.
No explosion was heard and no injuries damages have been reported. The IDF have yet to locate a projectile in Israeli territory.
This is the first siren sounding this month. In early March, the Israeli military confirmed that at least four rockets
fired by Palestinians in Gaza landed in communities near the border.
Sirens sounded in Israeli towns adjacent to the border of the Gaza Strip. The sirens were heard in Sderot and the Sha'ar Hanegev regional council.
In January, five rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip at southern Israel, with two of the projectiles landing in Israeli territory. Three other rockets landed near the security fence inside the coastal Palestinian enclave.
In retaliation to the barrage, the Israel Air Force struck four Hamas targets in Gaza.
