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.
