"Sirens were activated in Eshkol Regional Council some time ago. Initial reports suggest a rocket hit an open area. Forces are searching the vicinity," an Israeli Defense Forces spokesperson told RIA Novosti.
According to her, if confirmed, the attack would violate a long-term truce announced on August 26. The first violation of the ceasefire was documented in September, when Palestinian militants fired a mortar on the border with Gaza, the spokesperson noted.
On July 7, Israel launched Operation Protective Edge against Hamas's military infrastructure in Gaza. Over 50 days of hostilities, 2,100 Palestinians and 73 Israelis lost their lives.
