Reported rocket attack from Gaza was false alarm: Israeli military

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel’s military said there had been no rocket attack from the Gaza Strip on Thursday, despite a report on Israel Radio that two projectiles had struck after sirens sounded in the southern border area.

“The sirens were false alarms,” a military spokeswoman said.

On Tuesday, Israel said a mortar bomb was fired at it from the Gaza Strip, in the first such attack since a seven-week war in the enclave ended on Aug. 26.

But Hamas said Palestinians remained committed to the Egyptian-brokered truce.
