Rockets Hit Area Near Israel’s Eilat Resort, Israel Radio Says

Aug. 2 (Bloomberg) -- A number of rockets hit an open area near Israel’s Red Sea resort city of Eilat this morning, Israel’s Army Radio and Channel 2 television reported.

There were no reported injuries in the attack, Army Radio said. At least three rockets were fired from Egypt’s Sinai desert, across the border from Israel, Channel 2 reported.

The Israeli army is checking the reports, a military spokesman said, speaking anonymously according to regulations.

The incident came two months after a blast damaged a warehouse in Jordan’s port city of Aqaba, across the Red Sea gulf from Eilat. Initial media reports on April 22 said that rockets had been fired at Eilat from the Sinai.
