 February 9 - ISIS rocket attack on Israel is foiled when missiles fired from Egypt are shot down by Tel Aviv's Iron Dome defence system
 Article: Israel And The Last Days

Islamic State has claimed responsibility for rocket fire on the Israeli resort of Eilat, launched from Egypt's Sinai Peninsula.


During the attack, four projectiles were fired into southern Israel, where three were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system, according to the Israeli Defence Force's Southern Command. The Israeli army said Wednesday evening's rocket fire did not cause any casualties or any damage to property.

A total of 11 people were treated for shock in Eilat's Joseftal Hospital following the attack, including an Australian tourist, four holidaymakers and half a dozen local residents, the Jerusalem Post reports.


The lone missile that was not intercepted fell into open ground short of the town. 'Thanks to God alone, a military platoon fired several Grad rockets yesterday' towards Eilat, the jihadists' Egyptian affiliate said in a statement circulated on social media. The incident came just hours after a mortar reportedly fell in the Golan Heights in the Levant, near the Syria border fence. The missile did not cause any known causalities or damage.
