Red alert sirens sound in southern Israel

Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said that red alert sirens have been activated near the Gaza border warning residents in the area of incoming projectiles launched in their direction.

"The sirens that sounded in southern Israel were triggered by incoming fire, not rockets, from Gaza towards Israel," the IDF later confirmed in a tweet.

The move comes after the country carried out a strike against Palestinian Islamic Jihad sites in Gaza as a response to "arson balloons" fired at Israeli civilians earlier on Thursday.
