Tonight (Tuesday), explosions were heard in the Gaza envelope. The IDF Spokesperson’s Unit stated that it was from a “controlled explosion in the Kissufim area.” The statement also said it was a routine operational activity and no special instructions were given to the citizens of the region.

Approximately two weeks ago, a Red Alert rocket siren was heard at the Hof Ashkelon Regional Council. Shortly after, the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said it was a false alarm.
