The Hamas terror group claims to have launched an Ayyash 250 rocket — believed to have a range of 250 kilometers — at the southernmost city of Eilat.

Footage from an area north of Eilat shows a trail of smoke, apparently as a result of an interception of the projectile.

Hamas has launched several Ayyash 250 rockets during the ongoing war, without causing any injuries or damage.
