The extremist Salafist Muslim group Al-Ansar Beit Al-Makdis, which is allied with al Qaeda in Sinai, Tuesday claimed the rocket fire Monday night on the southern Israeli city of Eilat - like past attacks. The statement posted on social media in Gaza said: "Our war with the enemy in Egypt has not dissuaded us from the war against the first enemy of out nation.” The two Grad missiles exploded harmlessly outside the town.
