The Israel Defense Forces says the long-range rocket launched by the Hamas terror group in the Gaza Strip toward the southernmost city of Eilat was intercepted by the Arrow air defense system.

It marks the second interception by the long-range Arrow air defense system since the beginning of the war, after a ballistic missile launched from Yemen at Eilat was downed last week.
