The Israel Defense Forces announces air defense units intercepted “an aerial threat that was identified in the Red Sea area, south of Eilat.”

The military adds there was no threat to civilians and that “no penetration of Israeli territory was identified,” without specifying what was intercepted.

The announcement comes shortly after residents of Eilat reported a loud explosion, with video from the Red Sea coastal city showing an interceptor missile. No warning sirens were activated.

Earlier, the military used an Arrow surface-to-air missile to intercept a missile launched from “the Red Sea area,” in attack claimed by the Iran-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen.
