Israeli military: Eilat sirens were false alarm

The Israeli military said on Friday that sirens sounded in the southern Red Sea resort of Eilat were a false alarm and that there is no indication of any security incident.

Earlier on Friday, the Israel said sirens sounded in Eilat warning of a possible long-range aerial attack from Yemen.

Yemeni Houthis have previously launched drones and missiles at Israel in solidarity with the Palestinian Hamas group Israel has been battling in the Gaza Strip since Oct 7.

A four-day truce began Friday between Israel and Hamas, the first pause in a 48-day-old war that has devastated the Palestinian enclave.
