Israel’s Arrow air defense system intercepted a surface-to-surface missile over the Red Sea heading towards Eilat, said Israel Defense Forces spokesperson Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari.
Earlier in the day, a drone hit an Eilat school. The military only said that the incident was being reviewed.
Over the last few weeks, Iran-backed Houthis in Yemen have launched missiles and drones towards Israel. Till now, none have caused any damage to Israel.
