Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system intercepted a rocket that was shot at the resort city of Eilat on Monday, according to a spokesperson with the Israeli Defense Forces.
The IDF’s Twitter feed posted that the “Iron Dome intercepted a rocket fired at the city of Eilat.”
As Arutz Sheva points out, sirens were heard at around 1 a.m., and local residents said they heard explosions.
The Iron Dome was recently set up near Eilat. It was able to intercept the rocket before it was able to explode.
