As we have reported, the IDF is concerned with increased hostilities along the Gaza border. Arutz Sheva's Tova Dvorin reports that such worries are warranted, as Red Alerts sounded near the Gaza border today, but thankfully were false alarms:
Sirens sounded in the Gaza Belt and Eshkol Regional council areas Wednesday night, shortly before 8:30 pm.
Residents told Channel 2 that they heard explosions.
After a short search by IDF sources in the area, two hits were confirmed, in open fields between two Gaza Belt communities, Channel 2 reported. But half an hour later, the IDF stated that there were no hits, and that the siren was a "false alarm."
This is the latest in a spate of rocket and mortar attacks on Israel over the past month. Two weeks ago, Hamas terrorists lobbed rockets at Israeli civilians no fewer than eleven times in a three-day period.
