Overnight, an interceptor missile was launched at a “suspicious aerial target” heading toward Israel from the eastern direction, the military says.

The IDF says the target did not enter Israeli airspace amid the incident. It does not say if the target was shot down.

Due to fears of falling shrapnel from the interceptor, a siren was activated in the northern town of Na’ura.

The military has described past attacks from Iraq as “from the east.”

Meanwhile, the Iran-backed Islamic Resistance in Iraq claims to have launched a cruise missile at Haifa early this morning.
