The Red alert rocket warning siren sounded in the Eshkol Regional Council near Gaza on Sunday morning, however the incident has been confirmed by the IDF Spokesperson's Unit as a false alarm.

Sunday's occurrence is not the first red alert in the South this month. ISIS claimed a failed rocket launch towards Israel from Sinai earlier in December, triggering alarms, however the missiles fell in Egyptian territory.

The most recent rocket strike on an Israeli town was in October, when rockets were fired towards the Sderot from Gaza, narrowly missing residents' homes.
