At around 11:00 p.m., local time, on Sunday (20:00 GMT), the IDF tweeted that a rocket had been fired from Gaza.
"Israelis in southern Israel are sleeping in bomb shelters for the third night in a row. Why? Terrorists in Gaza just fired another rocket toward Israel. This rocket exploded inside Gaza," the IDF tweeted two hours after the initial report on the rocket firing.
