Iron Dome Successfully Intercepts a Missile Rocket Targeting Eilat For the First Time

An Iron Dome anti-missile battery intercepted a rocket targeting Eilat shortly after 1:00 A.M. on Tuesday. The incident marks the first time the Iron Dome system has intercepted a rocket over the southern resort city, and comes two days after Egyptian reports of an Israeli drone strike which killed five militants at a rocket-launching site in northern Sinai.
