After ocket alert sirens sounded in the Sha'ar Hanegev Regional Council near the border with Gaza on Tuesday afternoon the IDF said the alerts were a false alarm and that no rockets fell in Israeli territory.
Last month, Gazan terrorists fired a single rocket at southern Israel, that prompted a response by the Israel Air Force that targeted a rocket launcher in the northern part of the coastal territory.
"Hamas is the address and it bears responsibility," the IDF said at the time.
A group that sympathizes with al-Qaida, who have defied Hamas, have been blamed for strikes on Israel over the past months, none of which caused injuries or damage.
