Israeli Military: Blasts Heard in Southern City

(AP) Israeli military: Blasts heard in southern city
JERUSALEM
The Israeli military says explosions have been heard in the southern city of Eilat, and it’s suspected that rockets were fired from Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula.

The military said soldiers searched the area for several hours after the blasts were heard late Wednesday, but no exploded rockets were found. No injuries or damage were reported. There was no immediate comment from Egypt.

Eilat is next to the Sinai, scene of militant attacks in recent weeks. This month militants killed 16 Egyptian soldiers where the borders of Egypt, Israel and Gaza converge. They stole vehicles and crashed into Israel, where Israeli forces stopped them.

Eilat has been the target of previous rocket attacks, apparently from Sinai. Israel has expressed concern about extremist Islamists and Palestinian militants from Gaza operating there.
