Missiles from Gaza Strike Chof Ashkelon Region

At 3:04 pm this afternoon, red sirens warning of incoming missiles from Gaza sounded throughout the Israeli communities near the northern Gaza Border–focused on Karmia and Zikim. Thousands of Israeli men, women, and children were sent running to their bomb shelters or fortified places.

A minute later, residents on the ground reported hearing two explosions.

Five minutes later, the IDF spokesman’s office announced that it was a false alarm.

Shortly afterwards, IAF planes flew low over Gaza in a show of force.
