A mass brawl occurred at the Leonardo Plaza Hotel in Eilat on Friday night, during which IDF soldiers and police were called to the scene, Ynet reported.

According to the report, one of the guests used pepper spray at the hotel.

Ynet quoted a witness as saying a large group of tourists was staying at the hotel who "probably quarreled among themselves," and that the Israel Police, Border Police and even soldiers from the Givati Brigade were called to the scene.

This comes as tensions remain high in the wake of a series of terror attacks across Israel.

The same day, rockets were reportedly fired at Israel from the Gaza Strip.

Just hours after the incident in Eilat, reports broke that IDF forces had arrested the uncle of a man who killed 3 Israelis in a terror attack on Dizengoff Street in Tel Aviv on April 7.
