A barrage of rockets were fired from the Sanai at the Red Sea resort town of Eilat late Wednesday. Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system managed to intercept three of them while a fourth fell in an open area, the army said.

This fourth rocket was not shot down by the missile defense battery as it was headed towards an open field, a military spokesperson said.

No Israelis were hurt in the incident, but a number of Israelis suffered anxiety and shock.

The rockets were fired from the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt, according to the Israel Defense Forces.

The Times Of Israel reports that there were no immediate claims of responsibility, but the Islamic State affiliate Ansar Bait al-Maqdis — formerly known as Wilayat Sinai — has been waging a bloody battle with Egyptian forces in the peninsula.

Army and police forces began searching the area for signs of debris, police said.

Residents described the wail of air raid sirens before several loud explosions.

Eilat is a Red Sea resort city, popular with tourists from Europe. The city is currently full to capacity with tourists.

The last rocket fired at Eilat from the Sinai Peninsula was launched during the 2014 summer war between Hamas and Israel in the Gaza Strip. That projectile was also intercepted by an Iron Dome battery.

Hours before Wednesday’s attack, a mortar shell struck the Golan Heights, at Israel’s northern tip, causing neither damage nor injury.

In response, the army shelled a Syrian military position in the northern Golan Heights, the army said.

Egyptian media is reporting there is a heavy presence of drones over Northern Sinai following the rocket barrage into Israel short time ago.

This is a developing situation. We will keep you updated as more details come in.
