A Grad rocket has landed in the southern Israeli city of Eilat, but has caused no damage or injuries, Israeli security officials said.
District police chief Ron Gertner told Israeli radio the rocket had been fired from Egypt's Sinai peninsula.
He said it struck a construction site close to a residential area shortly after midnight (21:00 GMT).
The blast took place as thousands congregated in the resort town for the Jewish holiday of Passover.
Rocket attacks from Egyptian soil are uncommon. Attacks on Eilat and the nearby Jordanian town of Aqaba in 2010 killed one person and injured another four.

I love this kind of approach. Whatever happened - Israel did it! Makes life so easy. Forget that the rocket was found, it is grenade thrown by Israelis. Forget that Sinai is extremely unstable place right now,forget that gas pipe from Egypt to Israel (that feeds Jordan too) there was attacked 13 times in less then a year.
It is just evil Israel trying to paint all? Muslims bad and then murderously genocidally illegally criminally attack them all.
Genius. Waiting for explanation of "Israel firing rockets at itself because they are eeeeevil" doctrine.
By the way, only ones who openly stated that they like they civilians getting killed because it serves the greater goal are .... wait for it.... Hamas!
Israelis, all of them i say. This is why Iranian leadership supports them. Cause they are Israelis too.
So, it is your opinion that the puppet masters in Washington gave the Muslim Brotherhood 1.3 billion, (how many days ago? Along with clandestine meeting with the Brotherhood in Washington) which all was immediately followed by one rocket (lol... one... from a machine capable of much greater) launched at a construction site at midnight and this had NOTHING to do with the 1.3 Billion and the meetings?

Hmf, that rocket is a veiled threat. The jews are mulling over ascending Mt Moriah for a Passover sacrifice on the Eve of Passover, and i think this rocket was a veiled threat. It would be the first Pascal sacrifice on Mt Moriah in 2000 years some say. That can be one major reason i would think some islamic militants would fire a rocket to tickle Israel's feet.

In August 2010, a number of rockets were fired from Sinai toward Eilat. One landed across the Jordanian border, striking the Red Sea resort of Aqaba and killing a Jordanian taxi driver.
