An Islamist militant group claimed responsibility for the two rocket attacks aimed at Eilat, Israel's Red Sea resort town, SITE Intelligence Group reported on Thursday.
A group calling itself Ansar Jerusalem claimed to be responsible for firing "two Grad rockets into the city" which it said hit "inhabited targets", in a statement posted on online jihadist forums, the US-based monitoring agency said.
On Wednesday, evening, Israeli police said two blasts rocked the city.
Debris of the rockets which were apparently fired from Egypt's Sinai peninsula was later found.
