Terrorists fire 2 missiles at Israel from Sinai

At least two rockets fired from the Sinai Peninsula struck an open field in southern Israel on Monday morning.

The projectiles landed on open ground in the Negev desert and no one was injured, an army spokeswoman said in Tel Aviv.

The website cited sources in the Israeli army as saying that the warning sirens did not go off in the area in which the rockets exploded.

The military says Israeli forces are searching the area following Monday's attack.

Israel has not retaliated against the rockets.
