A rocket alert siren sounded in the Eshkol Regional Council on the border with the Gaza Strip on Thursday.

There was no immediate word if any rockets were fired into Israeli territory.

No injuries or damage were initially reported.

A spokesperson for the Eshkol Regional Council said that no rocket had initially been located and the IDF was investigating if a rocket was indeed fired or the siren was a false alarm.
