Warning sirens go off in the Eshkol and Kissufim regions near the south of the Strip, days after worst violence since 2014
The launches appear to be the first violation of a fragile ceasefire in effect since Wednesday morning, but comes after a weekend of intense violence along the Gaza border.
The two rocket launches triggered sirens in Israel’s Eshkol region, near the south of the Strip, shortly before the end of Shabbat. The sirens come as Israeli firefighters were battling huge fires in along the border caused by Palestinian fire kites.
Officials at the Israel Nature and Parks Authority estimated that at least one third of the Carmia reserve had been destroyed.
