Red Alert sirens went off in Kibbutz Nirim in the Eshkol Regional Council in southern Israel on Saturday evening. A rocket landed in an open area near the border fence that separates Gaza and Israel, the IDF reported. No injuries or damaged property were reported. The launch came after close to 40 rockets were fired into Israel over the weekend.Another red alert was registered to the Nahal Oz area, but a warning was only announced in the red alert app and only in an open area. The IDF Spokesperson’s Unit later confirmed that the rocket was a failed launch that landed in the Gaza Strip.In addition, hundreds of Gazans rioted along the border fence in the north of the coastal enclave, burning tires and throwing stones before the IDF dispersed them.The Iron Dome missile defense system intercepted a rocket launched from Gaza less than an hour earlier, following an assessment by the Defense Ministry earlier in the day following which defense officials said that life could return to normal in the communities surrounding Gaza and that no additional rockets were expected.Tensions have been high over the weekend following repeated rocket attacks from Gaza, 36 launched between Friday night and Saturday. Speaking at the Kirya in Tel Aviv, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed the security concerns, saying “I’ve instructed everyone to prepare for any scenario.”

Security officials have said that the escalation is tied to the ongoing violent riots in Jerusalem in which far-right Jews and Arabs clashed throughout the week. This is a developing story.
