The Israel Defense Forces says interceptor missiles were fired at two “suspicious aerial targets” over the Red Sea near the southernmost city of Eilat a short while ago, in what may have been a false alarm.

“The possibility that this is a false identification is being investigated,” the IDF says.

There was no infiltration into Israeli airspace, and sirens were not activated in Eilat “according to protocol,” it adds.
