Rockets were fired at Eilat

They may not have landed directly in the city, but they were launched in that direction:
The Color Red rocket alert siren blared throughout the city of Eilat shortly after 9 a.m. on Wednesday morning, sending residents racing for bomb shelters.

Tourists and others throughout the Red Sea resort area reported hearing multiple loud blasts a few seconds later.

It is believed that terrorists fired three rockets at the city, although the geographic source of the rocket fire is not yet clear. IDF commanders suspect the attack was launched from Sinai.

Security personnel searched the area but so far have not found rockets. No casualties were reported.
The culprits appear to be a Salafist gang called the Muhajideen Shura Council, and they released a video of what they'd done. Absolutely atrocious, and it's bound to cost the town some of its tourist income.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
