Alarm sirens blared in Sderot on Thursday evening, as three rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip toward the area around the southern city.

No injury or damage was initially reported, and the area where the projectiles fell was not immediately detected.

The past three weeks have seen relative quiet along Israel’s border with Gaza after a brief flareup last month.

On March 12, at least 60 rockets hit Israel and Israeli warplanes pounded Gaza in response, in the worst violence around the territory since an eight-day conflict between Israel and Hamas in November 2012.
