The IDF has given the all clear notice, announcing that the sirens heard over southern Israel a few minutes ago were caused by a malfunction.

The alarms were heard in the Eshkol regional council, in the south of Israel.

The last week has seen 16 rockets fired towards Israel from the Gaza Strip. 

One person has been slightly wounded as a result of stumbling when rushing to reach a bomb shelter and four others have been treated for shock.

A building and several vehicles were damaged when a rocket fell in the city of Sdderot on Saturday.
