Rocket sirens were heard in the Gaza border community of Kissufim early Wednesday morning.

The launching of the rockets comes following a rise in tensions between Israel and Hamas in recent days.

The IDF spokesperson announced that the alarm sounding in Kissufim was due to two failed rocket launches towards Israel, which fell in an open field in the Gaza Strip.

The rockets came after two days of relative quiet along the Gaza border, which was preceded by period of escalation in which dozens of rockets were fired since last week, coinciding with high tensions between Palestinians and Jews in Jerusalem.
