Sirens sound in south of Israel, army says false alarm

The IDF has said that the sirens which went off fell in the Sha’ar Hanegev region on Saturday were a false alarm.

The sirens come after The Israel Air Force (IAF) struck three terrorist targets in northern Gaza earlier on Saturday, following two Gazan rocket attacks on the cities of Sderot and Ashkelon.

One of the targets hit by the IAF was a Hamas-run telecommunications site.

A Salafist organization affiliated with Islamic State, the Sheikh Omar Hadid Brigades, said it was behind both rocket attacks on the South on Friday night.
