Hamas brought the war to southern Israel. As he announced the Islamist group on Wednesday fired a rocket at the city of Eilat, resort in the Gulf of Aqabain southern Israel, located at a distance of 220 kilometers from the Gaza Strip.
According to Palestinian sources, Hamas’ armed wing, the Al-Qassam Brigades, fired an Ayash-250 missile towards Eilat. The missile appears to have a range of 250 kilometers.
This is likely the third time Al Qassam has used the Ayyash-250 missile since October 7. and the first aimed at the south. It seems it is the longest-range Palestinian attack in the context of the war between Israel and Hamas since October 7.
The Israeli military confirmed that a long-range missile launched from the Gaza Strip in the wider area of Eilat. There were no casualties or damage from the attack, as the rocket landed in an open area, the IDF clarified.
