Israel intercepts rocket launched from Gaza -military

JERUSALEM (Reuters) -Israel’s military said it intercepted a rocket launched from Gaza early on Friday that set off air raid sirens in Israeli communities, around an hour before a seven-day truce between Hamas and Israel was due to expire.

Israel’s Kan public broadcaster described the sirens as the first to sound since the truce, which has been extended twice, began on Nov. 24. Neither side has announced an extension to the truce.

There was no immediate comment from Hamas or claim of responsibility for the launch. Israel’s military said its Iron Dome missile defence system had intercepted the projectile.

The truce was set to expire at 7 a.m. (0500 GMT).
