Security forces were unable to locate the rocket shells in the arid, open areas around the Red Sea city. No injuries were reported.

Thousands of Eilat’s residents rushed to protected spaces in their homes when they heard explosions.

“The whole house shook,” said Moshe, an Eilat resident. “I immediately understood it was a rocket. It sounded like it had landed in our backyard. I looked out the window looking over the bay, but I didn’t see anything because it was dark.”
