A drone of unknown origin has hit a building in the southern Israeli city of Eilat, the Israeli army said.
No one was physically hurt in the explosion, but paramedics were treating seven people for shock. Israeli media reported that a school had been damaged.
“The identity of the UAV and the details of the incident are under review,” the military said in a statement, referring to an unmanned aerial vehicle.
So far, no one has claimed responsibility for the incident.
Yemen’s Iran-backed Houthi rebels have claimed repeated missile and drone attacks aimed at Israel. The group has stepped up a campaign of disruptive strikes, also targeting US forces in the region, during Israel’s war with Hamas.
