The Israel Defense Forces says it has not identified any impacts and there are no reports of injuries following drone infiltration alerts that sounded across northern Israel.

“IDF forces are scanning the area from the ground and from the air,” the military says, adding that it will provide further details soon.

On sirens that sounded in the Carmel region, south of Haifa, the IDF says a long-range rocket was launched from the Gaza Strip, which landed in an open area, causing no damage.

The rocket launched toward the Carmel region, some 120 kilometers from the Gaza Strip, appears to be the most distant location in Israel that Hamas has targeted in the current round of fighting.

Hamas in its arsenal has rockets that can apparently reach 250 kilometers.

A Home Front Command officials notes that those in northern Israel being told to shelter do not need to sit in bomb shelters, but rather must simply lock themselves in their homes, recommending they also dim lights.
