The remnants of a 122 millimeter Grad-type rocket were found near Mitzpe Ramon in the South on Saturday after residents in the area had reported hearing an explosion on Friday night.

Sappers were disposing of the rocket's remnants and the IDF was investigating the circumstances of the incident.

Remains of a second rocket were discovered earlier on Saturday, south of Mitzpe Ramon in the area of Ovda in the Arava.

No injuries or damage were caused by either rocket.
