BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Rocket warning sirens that sounded in south Israel on Thursday morning were a false alarm, Israel's army said.
No rockets have been fired from the Gaza Strip since 10 p.m. Wednesday, an hour after a truce deal came into effect, a military spokeswoman said.
Israel and Hamas agreed to an Egyptian-sponsored ceasefire on Wednesday to halt an eight-day conflict around the Gaza Strip that has killed some 170 Palestinians and five Israelis.
Israeli police said 12 rockets landed in open areas after 9 p.m. and caused neither damage or casualties.
