The rockets that were fired at the southern city of Eilat earlier this month had been smuggled into Sinai from Libya, according to a Channel 10 News report.

One of the rockets, a Grad-type, had exploded in a residential neighborhood in Eilat. None were injured.

Police discovered the shell of the second rocket days later.
