The Israel Defense Forces confirms a drone hit a school in the southernmost city of Eilat, causing damage.

“The identity of the aircraft and the details of the incident are under review,” it adds.

In recent weeks, the Iran-backed Houthis in Yemen have attempted to fire drones and missiles at Eilat, though in all the attempts the projectiles were either intercepted or missed their target.
