Missiles fired at Israeli resort town of Eilat

Monday, August 02, 2010 |  Israel Today Staff

Terrorists operating out of the Sinai Peninsula fired five missiles toward the resort city of Eilat at the southern tip of Israel on Monday morning.

Two of the missiles landed in the neighboring Jordanian resort and port city of Aqaba. One of those missiles hit the beach adjacent to the Intercontinental Hotel and wounded four people, one seriously.

Two of the missiles landed in the Red Sea, and another hit just behind the main row of luxury hotels in Eilat.

The Israeli army was coordinating with the Jordanian and Egyptian militaries to determine the source of the attack and the group responsible for it. The Sinai is increasingly becoming a hotbed of terrorist activity. Hamas and several global terrorist networks are active there.
