Incoming rocket sirens are sounding in the southern city of Netivot and nearby communities, for the first time in nearly three months.

Locals report seeing at least two Iron Dome interceptions in the area, following a rocket attack from the Gaza Strip.

The Magen David Adom ambulance service says there are no reports of injuries in the attack, aside from a handful of people who were slightly hurt after falling over while running to bomb shelters.

The last time rocket sirens sounded in Netivot was on January 16.
