Rocket launched from Gaza, sirens sound in envelope settlements: Media
The Israeli occupation says a rocket launched from Gaza toward illegal Israeli settlements was intercepted.
A spokesperson for the Israeli occupation military on Saturday confirmed that a rocket launched from the Gaza Strip toward the Gaza envelope settlements was intercepted by the Iron Dome anti-air system, Israeli media reported.
The media indicated that sirens were activated and a red alert was given in the Gaza envelope settlements.

The media cited illegal Israeli settlers as saying that they heard a large explosion and saw an Iron Dome missile being launched.
According to the media, no damage or casualties were reported.
It is noteworthy that last week, Israeli settlers in the Gaza envelope settlements reported hearing at least three explosions, at least one of which was due to the Israeli Iron Dome intercepting a rocket fired from Gaza over "Sderot".
"A rocket was launched from Gaza toward the city of Sderot, and it was intercepted by the Iron Dome," Israeli media said, citing an Israeli occupation military spokesperson.
