"The alarm sirens went off in the Eilat area after which an explosion was heard," police said in a statement.
According to the Israeli Army, the Iron Dome anti-missile defense system intercepted the missiles, which were fired from the territory of Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula.
No immediate information on casualties was available, the Army’s press service said in a statement.
The Eilat port town has repeatedly come under missile attacks from the territory of Egypt, where radical Islamist groups are active. So far, these attacks have not led to any casualties or damages.
