An Israeli army tank fired two shells on a military post in Gaza Strip with no injuries reported, Israeli and Palestinian sources reported Thursday.

The rockets, which triggered the Code Red alert system in Ashkelon and other Israeli communities, landed in Gaza, the Israel Defense Forces spokesman said.

The launches set off incoming rocket alert sirens shortly after 6 p.m., in the Hof Ashkelon and Sha'ar Hanegev regions, northeast of the Gaza Strip.
