Militants in the Sinai peninsula fired at least two rockets at Israel’s southern resort town of Eilat early Wednesday, officials said, highlighting what Israel says is a dire security situation in neighboring Egypt. A jihadist group later claimed the attack.
Nobody was hurt in the attack, police said, although one rocket exploded near the courtyard of a house. Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said the remains of two Grad-style katyusha rockets had been found and bomb experts were looking for more.
