The Israel Defense Forces confirms that the building hit in Eilat by a drone apparently launched from Iraq in the early hours of the morning was at its Navy base.

Damage was caused to the building, but there were no injuries, the IDF says.

The military says the incident is under investigation.

Earlier, the IDF said it had identified a “suspicious aerial target” that entered Israeli airspace “from the east” and then impacted “in the Eilat Bay area.”
