Explosions Heard in Israeli Resort of Eilat
The associated press is reporting that at least two rockets exploded in Israel's Red Sea resort town of Eilat early on Wednesday, causing no casualties but prompting the authorities to close the airport, police said.
"We've found two explosion sites in the city, we've also closed off the airport as a precaution," police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld told AFP, saying one landed in "an open area close to one of the neighbourhoods."
He said the sirens had sounded but that there were no initial reports of casualties. "Bomb disposal experts are searching the area," he said.
Mr Rosenfeld said a number of explosions were heard but he could not say from where rockets were fired.
