A rocket fired by Gaza gunmen exploded near Kibbutz Miflasim on Thursday evening, triggering warning sirens in that area close to the border with the northern part of the coastal territory.

The IDF said the blast occurred in an open area, apparently inside Gaza. There were no reports of any injuries.
