Two Palestinian rockets slammed into the Eshkol Regional Council on Thursday evening, without triggering an air raid siren. The rockets fell in a field, and failed to cause injuries or damages.

A jihadi group in the Sinai Peninsula fired two Grad rockets at Eilat on Wednesday morning, triggering air raid sirens in the Red Sea city.



The rockets exploded in open territory, but failed to cause injuries or damages.

One projectile fell in a building site.

Security forces later tracked down the rocket remains, directing their searches in accordance to where residents heard blasts. Photographs taken shortly after the blast showed plumes of white smoke rising from the impact sites.

A Salafi jihadist group claimed responsibility for Wednesday’s attacks, the AFP reported.

“The lions of the Mujahedeen Shura Council in the Environs of Jerusalem managed to target occupied Eilat with two Grad rockets on the morning of April 17, and withdrew safely,” a statement posted on jihadist websites said.
