The Israel Defence Forces announced via Twitter that two "rockets" were fired from the Gaza Strip towards Israel, without specifying which region specifically was targeted.
An IDF spokesperson told The Jerusalem Post that one of the missiles fell in an uninhabited area thus not resulting in any harm, while the other is believed to have fallen in the Gaza Strip itself. According to the Israeli media, sirens went off in the communities of Nir Am and Gavi’im in Israel's southwest, close to the strip's borders.
The attack comes six days after Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah threatened Israel with strikes throughout the country that would be carried out with the use of precision-guided missiles.
"Today we are not only able to bomb Tel Aviv as a city, but we, God willing, are able to bomb very specific targets in Tel Aviv and also anywhere in occupied Palestine", Nasrallah said.
The threat comes amid plans by the unity government made up of Likud and the Blue and White Alliance to annex certain areas of the West Bank, with the preliminary date set for 1 July. Tel Aviv had also planned to annex the Jordan Valley, but recent reports suggest that Israel may abandon these ambitions. The annexation plans have been heavily criticised by the UN, which has called for resolving the issue of the Palestinian territories via international dialogue.
