A hostile drone struck a building in an IDF naval base in Israel’s southernmost city of Eilat overnight, the IDF confirmed on Monday morning.

Shortly past 1:30 a.m. local time, drone infiltration alerts began sounding in Eilat and the surrounding Ayalot region.

Israel Defense Forces at first stated that a hostile aircraft had crossed into Israel from the east, indicating from the direction of the Kingdom of Jordan, and fell in the area of the Bay of Eilat.

“There were no casualties and there was minor damage to a building,” the statement added.

Later in the day, the IDF confirmed that the drone struck a hangar in the area of the naval base but only caused minor damage. It didn't comment on why the drone wasn't identified and shot down.
