It was the first time in five years that the popular tourist resort was hit by a rocket.

In 2005 katyushas fired from Jordan landed next to the Eilat airport. At the same time two others narrowly missed a US Navy vessel docked at the nearby Jordanian port of Aqaba. No injuries were reported.

A group linked with Al Qaida claimed responsibility for the attack.
