Israel Consults with Egypt on Eilat Explosions

The Israel Defense Forces asked Egypt, Thursday evening, to check if any missiles fell in the Sinai Peninsula, after two explosions were heard in nearby Eilat around 9:30 p.m. No flashes were seen before the blasts and preliminary searches of the area revealed no traces of missiles.

The last attack on the Red Sea port was launched from Sinai in April. Two rockets were found, after extensive searches. In contrast to that attack, no alert was sounded Thursday evening.
