IDF spokesman Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari says there is no security incident in northern Israel, adding that the military is investigating what caused the drone alerts to sound across northern Israel earlier this evening.

Returning to the southern front, Hagari says five Palestinian gunmen were identified near Zikim earlier today.

Three were killed in a gun battle with troops, while another two apparently fled. Hagari says troops are searching for the pair in the area.

Hagari says the IDF has continued to carry out strikes in the Gaza Strip today against “terror areas.”

He says the military is targeting all of Hamas’s infrastructure.
