Israel fired by missiles from Egypt

At least two rockets fired from the Sinai Peninsula struck an open field in southern Israel on Monday morning.

The rockets hit the Eshkol region, which borders southern Gaza and the northeastern tip of the Sinai Peninsula. No one was injured and no damage was caused by the missiles, the army said.

"This morning projectiles launched from Sinai hit an open area in southern Israel. No injuries reported. Israeli Defense Forces are searching the area," the Israeli Defense Forces Spokesperson Peter Lerner posted on his Twitter page.

A police bomb disposal unit found one of them near the community of Naveh, near the Egyptian border. A second sapper team was on its way to the location of the other rocket, police said.
