The Sinai-based jihadist organization Ansar Beit al-Maqdis has claimed credit for the rocket attack on Eilat late Friday night, according to Israel Radio.

The group issued an official communique on Saturday proclaiming that its operatives had launched two Grad rockets at Israel's southern tip as revenge for Israel's attacks on the Gaza Strip.
