Two hours before the multi-day truce is set to kick in, air raid sirens have been triggered in communities near the border with Gaza.

There are no immediate reports of impact, damage or injuries.

Many of the towns in the immediate vicinity of Gaza have been emptied of residents since the October 7 massacre.
