Emanuel (Mannie) Fabian is The Times of Israel's military correspondent

The Israel Defense Forces says a surface-to-surface missile, believed to have been launched from Yemen, was intercepted over the Red Sea using the long-range Arrow air defense system.

The incident set off sirens in the southernmost city of Eilat, though the IDF says the missile did not enter Israeli airspace.

“The target did not cross into Israeli territory, and did not pose a threat to civilians. The alert was activated according to protocol,” the IDF says.
