A suspected drone infiltration alarm is sounding in Israel’s southernmost city of Eilat.

The IDF is investigating the cause.

The Iran-backed Houthis in Yemen have fired several ballistic missiles and drones at the city in recent weeks, all of which were intercepted or missed their target. An Iran-backed group in Syria also launched drones at Eilat, hitting a school earlier this month.
