Incoming rocket sirens are sounding in the coastal city of Ashkelon and nearby towns close to the border with the Gaza Strip.

Residents of the area report hearing explosions.

There are no immediate reports of injuries or damage.

The sirens come less than a day after a ceasefire was reached between Israel and Palestinian Islamic Jihad, ostensibly ending five days of fighting.
