The Israel Defense Forces says two drones launched from the Gaza Strip a short while ago were “thwarted.”

The IDF says the drones entered Israeli airspace, setting off sirens in the southern communities of Nir Oz and Ein HaBesor.

Hamas had claimed to have launched two “suicide drones” at two IDF positions in the south.

The IDF does not elaborate on how the aircraft were downed.

Meanwhile, fresh rocket sirens are sounding in Sderot and surrounding communities.
