Grad rockets fired from Egypt's Sinai peninsular hit Israel's southern holiday resort of Eilat Wednesday night and the Jordanian Port of Aqaba. No injuries have been reported.
Israel's Ynet news and Israel's Army radio Galei Zahal report that following loud explosions in the city grad rocket parts were found in a non-residential area.
Not only was Eilat hit by missiles, according to Haaretz, Jordanian officials confirmed Thursday that warehouses in the Jordanian Red Sea port city of Aqaba adjacent to Eilat had also been hit.
The Jerusalem Post reports that Eilat is being swept by Israel's IDF, police and bomb sappers who are searching for more rockets.

Eilat is a popular resort for Israelis and visitors from abroad for the holiday of Passover which starts on Friday. The Jerusalem Post and Galei Zahal report that the city is now on full alert for the holiday period and extra forces have been recruited.
As mentioned in The Jerusalem Post, although rockets fell around the city and in Aqaba in 2010, in the last five years Eilat has not been a target for rocket terrorist attacks.
