Rockets intercepted above Israeli towns near Gaza

Emanuel (Mannie) Fabian is The Times of Israel's military correspondent.

Rocket sirens have sounded in several towns close to the border with the Gaza Strip, with about an hour to go before a ceasefire between Israel and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad is set to begin at 11:30 p.m.

According to initial reports, at least three projectiles are intercepted by the Iron Dome air defense system over Nirim and Ein HaShlosha.

There are no immediate reports of injuries or damage in the latest attacks.
