A rocket was fired at Israel from the Gaza Strip on Wednesday evening (local time), August 21; the projectile reportedly landed in an open area. Rocket sirens sounded in Nahal Oz and Sha'ar HaNegev Regional Council. No casualties or damages were immediately reported.

Similar incidents are to be expected over the near term amid heightened tensions along the Israeli-Gazan border.  


Individuals in Israel and the Palestinian Territories are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all demonstrations due to the risk of violence, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities and their home governments. Seek immediate shelter in the event of a rocket attack.

Some Western governments advise their citizens against all travel to the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, and areas near the Israeli-Lebanese, Israeli-Syrian, and Israeli-Egyptian borders.
