There were no injuries among the soldiers, but a military vehicle sustained light damage.

The IDF said that the incident is believed to be a spillover of gunfire from Egypt.

Two weeks ago, two rockets were fired from the Sinai area into southern Israel. The rockets hit the Eshkol Regional Council, but exploded in open regions without causing physicals injuries or damages.

The Islamic State (ISIS) group later claimed responsibility for the rocket fire, saying in a statement on its Amaq propaganda agency that the attack “targeted a Jewish community with two Grad missiles”.
