As of Thursday morning, Eilat’s threat level was lowered and police said that the city will operate as normal.
The Iron Dome has not intercepted rockets headed for Eilat since 2014, when it did so during the most recent war with Hamas in the Gaza Strip, Operation Protective Edge.
Eilat police reported that none of the rockets fell within city limits and requested residents to immediately report all suspicious events and/or objects found.
The incident came hours after a mortar reportedly fell in the Golan Heights near the Syria border fence.
There were no known causalities or damage.
The IDF reported that the mortar was spillover from fighting within Syria, and that in response, the IDF struck a target in the northern Syrian Golan and confirmed a hit.
Such spillover is not unusual, and the IDF has usually responded, even if it was expected to be accidental, with attacks against Syrian Army positions.
