The Israel Defense Forces says it fired an interceptor missile at a target following a “suspicious identification” in the skies of southern Israel earlier.

An alert was activated in open areas as a result of the interceptor missile, due to fears of falling shrapnel.

Residents of the Netivot area reported seeing a blast in the sky.

The IDF says further details surrounding the incident are under investigation.
