Army says building damaged in Eilat drone attack, apparently launched from Iraq

The Israel Defense Forces says a building was lightly damaged in a drone attack in the Eilat region, but there were no injuries in the incident.

The army says soldiers identified a “suspicious aerial target that entered Israeli territory from the east” which impacted “in the Eilat Bay area.”

The IDF statement does not say what building was hit or if any attempt was made to intercept the object.

The reference to the projectile’s origin being to the east appears to confirm a claim by the Islamic Resistance of Iraq that it fired on Israel.

Jordan and Saudi Arabia are also to the east of Eilat.
