Sirens sounded in the Gaza Belt and Eshkol Regional council areas Wednesday night, shortly before 8:30 pm.

Residents told Channel 2 that they heard explosions. 

After a short search by IDF sources in the area, two hits were confirmed, in open fields between two Gaza Belt communities, Channel 2 reported. But half an hour later, the IDF stated that there were no hits, and that the siren was a "false alarm."

This is the latest in a spate of rocket and mortar attacks on Israel over the past month. Two weeks ago, Hamas terrorists lobbed rockets at Israeli civilians no fewer than eleven times in a three-day period.
