A rocket launched from the Sinai slammed into the Club Hotel in Eilat at 1:27am, Tuesday morning.
Two rockets were launched. One landed in an open area in the Shachmon neighborhood, the second landed on a car in the hotel’s parking lot, which is also next to the Beatles Pub.
Five people were lightly injured from shrapnel. Two additional people were treated for shock.
The article will be updated as more information becomes available.
Update: Two terrorist groups, Islamic Jijad and the Iz al-Din al-Qassam Brigade, which is part of Hamas’s military wing, both independently claimed credit for the attack. (Maybe they should fight it out among themselves, and leave us out of it).
