Israel’s Iron Dome Intercepts Rockets Fired From Egypt Toward Resort City of Eilat

Aaron Klein | Breitbart -- 

Israel’s Iron Dome anti-missile defense system successfully intercepted three rockets fired from Egypt’s Sinai toward the southern resort town of Eilat on Wednesday night.

A fourth rocket landed in an open area, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said.

Hours earlier, a mortar shell from Syria in the north struck Israel’s Golan Heights. In response, the IDF targeted a post belonging to the Syrian regime in the northern Golan Heights, the IDF said in a text message statement sent to reporters.

In Eilat, residents were surprised to hear the rocket alert siren blasting.  According to local media outlets, five people were treated for anxiety, but there were no reports of injuries or damage from the rockets fired from the Sinai Peninsula, which is a known enclave for Islamic State-affiliated terrorists.
