Israel army admits to false alarm on Gaza rocket

Nov. 28, 2010 5:48 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 29, 2010 8:52 A.M.)
JERUSALEM (AFP) -- The Israeli army said its report of a rocket being fired into Israel from the Gaza Strip on Sunday appeared to have been a false alarm.

The army said earlier that a rocket was fired from Gaza but exploded in mid-air as it headed toward the Shaar HaNegev region.

However, a military spokesman said it appeared no rocket was fired and that the report was caused by a false alarm from Israel's early warning system.

According to an army count, militants have fired more than 190 rockets or mortar rounds at Israel from the Hamas-controlled coastal strip since the start of this year.
