Just as Israel began the release of 26 Palestinian prisoners, 15 of them to Gaza, two rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip towards Sderot on Tuesday evening.

One rocket fell within the Strip, while the other landed in an open field near Sderot. No one was reported injured.

The Code Red rocket alarm was sounded in Sderot and Sha'ar Hanegev Regional Council, Israel Radio reported.  

An IDF spokeswoman said searches were underway for the remains of the projectiles.
