Overnight, sirens had sounded in the northern coastal city of Acre and the Krayot area near Haifa, after interceptor missiles were launched at a “suspicious aerial target,” the military says.

The IDF says that after an investigation, it was determined that the target was “a false identification,” and there was no infiltration of a drone or other projectile into Israeli airspace.

Sirens were activated due to fears of falling shrapnel following the interceptors exploding.
