An explosion heard on Monday morning near Eilat was caused by a mishap, and not an attack, during the building of a border fence on the Sinai border, IDF Spokesman said.

The explosion was caused by old explosives placed in the ground that went off during work on the fence.

No one was injured in the incident, but one person was treated for shock and evacuated to Yoseftal Medical Center in Eilat.
