Terrorist missile slams into Eilat

 Terrorists operating out of the Egyptian Sinai fired at least one Grad missile into the southern Israel resort town of Eilat early Thursday morning. The missile landed in a residential neighborhood, but miraculously did not cause any injuries or damage.

Local residents reported hearing three explosions at the time of the attack, but so far security forces have only found the remains of one missile.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that the Sinai is increasingly becoming a base for terrorist activity following the takeover of the Muslim Brotherhood and other radical Islamic groups in Egypt.

Last August, a team of terrorists infiltrated southern Israel from the Sinai and killed seven Israelis on the highway just north of Eilat.

The last missile attack on Eilat occurred in August 2010, when Sinai-based terrorists fired five Katyusha missiles at the city.
