The Mujahedeen Shura Council, the Salafi jihadist group that claimed responsibility for Wednesday morning’s rocket attack on Eilat, has released a video which shows the rockets being fired towards the resort city.

The Color Red rocket alert siren blared throughout the city of Eilat shortly after 9 a.m. on Wednesday morning. It is believed that terrorists fired three rockets at the city. No casualties were reported.

However, a spokesperson for the Israel Defense Force said the rocket fire had been traced to Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, a region which has become a hotbed of terrorist activity since the fall in 2011 of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.
