Two explosions rocked the southern port of Eilat Thursday morning in what authorities believe was a katyusha rocket attack. No injuries were reported.

Authorities are currently trying to locate the rockets point of impact and determine the source of fire.

In 2005 a rocket fired from Jordan landed next to the Eilat airport and two others missed a US Navy vessel docked at the nearby Jordanian port of Aqaba. No one was hurt.

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