Israel's army says two rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip just hours ahead of Ariel Sharon's funeral but they did not appear to have landed in Israel.

The location in southern Israel where Sharon was to be buried later in the day is within range of rockets from the Palestinian territory and rockets in the past have hit the area.
