Here we go again: Two Three grad rockets slam into Eilat

Two more grad rockets slammed into Eilat - once the safest place in Israel - on Wednesday morning, with one landing in the yard of a home and the other landing in an open area. No injuries or property damage were reported.

Two other rockets landed across the border in Aqaba, Jordan.
Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said bomb disposal crews located two grad rockets at two different landing areas. "We've shut down the airport for security reasons. We'll take additional precautions in the event of more rocket sirens," he told The Jerusalem Post.

Channel 2 said one rocket fell in the yard of a home, and the second in an open area. A number of residents reportedly suffered shock.

An Eilat police spokesman told the 103 FM radio station, close to 9 a.m. sirens were heard. A number of explosions were heard by residents following the sirens.

Two rockets also landed in the neighboring Jordanian resort city of Aqaba, Israel Radio reported.

The IDF deployed an Iron Dome battery outside the southern resort city at the beginning of the month.

The missile defense battery was stationed there in anticipation of possible rocket fire from the Egyptian Sinai peninsula. 
These are coming from the Sinai - Gaza is too far away. Perhaps, President Obama's new best friend forever, Mohammed Morsy, needs to have a fire lit under his rear end so that he will do something about it. 

UPDATE 11:32 AM

Make it three grads that hit Eilat.

I'm looking on FB for the big red IDF ROCKETS FIRED notice. Don't see it yet. IDF Spokesperson, are you there? Maybe I'll find one of the old ones that I shared across and make my own. WARCRIME ROCKETS!
