Iron Dome intercepts rocket headed for Eilat

Israel's Iron Dome anti-missile system shot down a rocket headed from Sinai to Eilat early on Tuesday morning. The incident took place just a few days after Israel allegedly killed four al-Qaeda terrorists in Sinai using a drone. This is from the first link.
Terrorists fired a rocket at Eilat shortly before 1 a.m. on Tuesday morning, triggering an air raid siren and activating the Iron Dome anti-rocket battery, which is stationed at the Red Sea city.
The Iron Dome system intercepted at least one rocket, according to initial IDF assessments.
It is unknown at this stage whether additional rockets fell in open areas outside of the city.
Residents reported hearing the siren and a number of blasts.
