Incoming rocket sirens are sounding in Israel’s southernmost city of Eilat.

Residents of the area report seeing air defense activity and at least one interception.

The IDF says the cause of the alarms is under investigation.

The Iran-backed Houthis in Yemen have fired several ballistic missiles and drones at the city in amid the ongoing war, all of which were intercepted or missed their target.

An Iran-backed group in Syria also launched drones at Eilat, hitting a school last month.
