Israeli Army Intercepts Missile Bound For Eilat From Red Sea

22.02.2024 11:12

Missile was apparently launched by Iranian backed Houthis in Yemen, says Israeli media.

The Israeli army said Thursday morning that it had intercepted a missile coming from the Red Sea aimed at the southern city of Eilat.

Air defenses intercepted a missile that was en route to Israeli territory from the Red Sea, the Israeli army spokesperson wrote on X

The missile was "apparently launched by the Iran-backed Houthis in Yemen," according to the Times of Israel newspaper.

The Houthis have been targeting southern Israel with drones and missiles and attacking cargo ships in the Red Sea owned or operated by Israeli companies or transporting goods to and from Israel in solidarity with the Gaza Strip, which has been under an Israeli onslaught since Oct. 7.

With tensions escalating due to joint US/British airstrikes against Houthi targets in Yemen, the group said it considered all American and British ships legitimate military targets.
