JERUSALEM, Aug. 2 (Xinhua) -- Five rockets were fired at Israeli Red Sea coastal city of Eilat on Monday morning, with no injures and damages reported in the city.
The rockets hit sea and open areas near the city, as well as Jordanian territories, local daily Ha'aretz quoted Israeli security forces as saying, adding that the rockets were apparently launched from Egypt's Sinai Peninsula.
Rocket attack against Eilat is rare. Earlier, rockets were fired at the Israeli popular resort in April, with no damages or casualties.
Israeli air forces bombed the Palestinian Gaza strip over the weekend, in a retaliation of the rockets attack against Israeli southern areas.
