According to military officials, no one has been hurt and no damage has been caused.
Following the sirens that were sounded in the Eshkol Regional Council, two rockets were identified from the Gaza Strip launched towards Israel. The IDF's Iron Dome aerial defense system intercepted one of the launches and the other apparently landed in the Gaza Strip— IDF (@IDFSpokesperson) 2 июня 2018 г.
Earlier, it was reported that the sirens went off in the Eshkol and Kissufim regions near the south of the Strip.
The news comes in the light of the recent escalation of tensions and the exchange of fire between the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip and the Israeli forces. On Tuesday, the IDF said that numerous mortars had been fired at various targets in Israel from the Gaza Strip, with the Iron Dome aerial defense system intercepting most of them.
Tensions between the Israeli and Palestinians flared up amid the Great March of Return rally. Mass Palestinian protests began in Gaza on March 30 and lasted until the so-called Nakba Day on May 15 — the day that commemorates the 70th anniversary of the Palestinian exodus that occurred as a result of Israel's declaration of independence in 1948.
