One long-range rocket was launched from the Gaza Strip a short while ago, setting off the sirens in towns south of Haifa, the Israel Defense Forces says.

The IDF says the projectile exploded mid-air.

The Magen David Adom ambulance service says there are no reports of injuries.

The Hamas terror group claims responsibility for the attack, saying it launched a R160 missile, which is thought to have a range of 160 kilometers.

Hamas has launched long-range rockets several times amid the war that began on October 7, setting off sirens in northern Israel.
