Rocket alert sirens are currently sounding in western Haifa.

It marks the first time since January that alerts have been activated in the city.

There is no immediate comment from the IDF on the cause.

Residents report seeing an interceptor missile launched over the area.

Shortly afterward sirens also sound in a number of towns in the Upper Galilee and Golan Heights.

Earlier this morning, the IDF said it downed a suspected drone off the coast of Haifa, although no sirens sounded amid the incident.
