'Color Red' sirens sounded in Hof Ashkelon region in southern Israel Monday morning. There were no reports of explosions, however, causing speculation that the sirens were the result of a false alarm.

Security forces later confirmed that the sirens were indeed a false alarm.

A ceasefire between Israel and Hamas went into effect on August 26, after a 50-day war in which dozens of Hamas rockets struck Israel.

Sirens sounded in the Kiryat Shmona and Metula areas, near the Lebanese border, on Thursday night, according to the Home Front Command. 

No injuries or damage were reported. 

The IDF Spokesperson's Office stated shortly after the event that the siren was a false alarm.
