Two rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip at Israel, one of which was intercepted on Thursday night, according to a statement from the IDF.
The second projectile apparently landed in an open field, causing no harm.
Video footage on social media appears to show Iron Dome anti-rocket missiles being fired over the city of Ashkelon, where air raid sirens were heard and residents rushed to bomb shelters.
Explosions were also heard in the city, which usually attend an interception, but not always.
B’chasdei shamayim, no injuries have been reported.
