13-Apr-14: Report of Gazan rocket attacks tonight: explosions heard in Eshkol region

Too soon to have any confirmation, but Hebrew-language online reports from eyewitnesses say rocket attacks were detected around 12:30 tonight (Sunday morning) and multiple explosions have been heard in the Eshkol region of southern Israel.

UPDATE 2:00 am: Times of Israel says no injuries, no serious property damage.

A second round of Tzeva Adom (Color Red) incoming missile alarms was heard in another part of the south (we will leave a more detailed location till there's confirmation) around 12:45 am. Ynet reports that a mortar shell exploded in open fields near the security fence that separates the Gaza Strip from Israel, but it was unclear (said the report) whether the shell fell on the Israeli side or or the Gazan, and it's not clear to us whether this is connected to the reports of Tzeva Adom sirens. We will try to update when there's more to report.
