Israeli police: No trace of Grad rockets fired at Eilat so far
Israeli security forces have not found any trace of Grad rockets being fired at Eilat, after two explosions were heard in the southern resort city Wednesday evening, DPA has reported Israeli police as saying.
"The Israeli army began to comb the region, in the wake of the two blasts, to ascertain whether these two blasts resulted from a missile attack," said the website of Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth.
Israeli police said they have received numerous phone calls from residents saying they heard blasts in the city, according to Thursday's DPA story.
Yedioth Ahronoth pointed out that nearly two months ago, the remains of a Grad rocket were found a few kilometers north of Eilat. Militant groups in the Gaza Strip often use Grad rockets when they attack Israel.
Two months ago, militants in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula fired two rockets at Eilat, though no one was reported injured.
According to Israeli authorities, that bombing was the first from Sinai since the fall of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak in February 2011.
