The IDF Spokesman today announced a rocket launch from the Gaza Strip into Israeli territory was identified.

As a result of the launch, a red alert was activated in the app and in open space only.

There were no injuries or damage.

The Eshkol Regional Council said, "About half an hour ago, a single rocket was detected in our area in the center of the Council. Apparently, it was a fall in an open area near the perimeter fence. No alarm was sounded in the communities because there was no danger of it falling inside the communities. We're in contact with the IDF and there's no change in the guidelines."

Yesterday, an incendiary balloon was found near Moshav Tidhar in the Bnei Shimon Regional Council. A resident who discovered the balloon called the police and a sapper neutralized the charge.

The past month-and-a-half has been relatively quiet on the Israeli-Gaza border.

The defense establishment warned that if sovereignty is implemented, there may be an escalation on this border.
