Rocket sirens sound in Israeli communities south of Gaza

Fresh rocket sirens sound in Israeli communities just south of the Gaza Strip, some two hours before a ceasefire is due to go into effect.

The alarms are heard in towns throughout the Eshkol region of southern Israel.

Residents of the area were ordered by the military to remain in close proximity of bomb shelters out of concern for attacks in the lead up to the ceasefire.
