The radical Salafi organization Ansar Bait al-Maqdis claimed responsibility for the rocket fired towards Eilat Friday night. In an announcement by the al-Qaeda affiliate, the organization said the rocket was fire because of the "cooperation between Egypt and Israel and the bombing of Gazan residents."
The organization, which has taken responsibility for similar events in the past, sent Israel a message: "Nothing will stop us from fighting you and hurting you." The rocket fired towards the Israeli city was intercepted by an Iron Dome battery. (Roi Kais)
