The Gaza Strip launched a rocket towards southern Israel, the Israel Defense Forces said on Twitter. It is alleged that the missile was intercepted by an air defense system.
Air raid sirens sounded in the vicinity of the city of Ashkelon and areas on the border with the Gaza Strip. Citizens were warned about a possible rocket attack.
Since May 2021, a ceasefire has been in place between Israel and Palestinian movements in the Gaza Strip. As a result of the escalation in 2021, the parties exchanged a number of blows, which led to the death of 257 people in the Gaza Strip and 13 people in Israel.
