The Israeli Army intercepted a cruise missile over the Red Frame this Wednesday, an incident that occurred shortly after alarms went off about the possible infiltration of a “hostile aircraft” into Israeli airspace.

“Following a warning about the infiltration of a plane in the area of ​​the city of Eilat, the Air Force successfully intercepted a cruise missile launched towards Israeli territory,” the Israeli forces indicated in a message broadcast through X, before known as Twitter.

Thus, they have ruled out that the “threat has entered the territory” of Israel in what could mean an attack by the Houthi rebels of Yemen, who this week hijacked a ship in the Red Sea in response to Israeli bombings against the Gaza Strip.

Although it is a merchant ship operated by a Japanese firm flying the Bahamas flag, it is owned by a British company linked to British-Israeli businessman Rami Ungar.

Yemeni rebels – who are backed by Iran – have recently launched several ballistic missiles and launched drones over the city of Eilat, although all of them have been intercepted or have not successfully reached their target.
