On 27 October, a missile struck a residential building in Taba, an Egyptian coastal resort town along the Israeli border. Israeli authorities allege the missile originated from Houthi militants in Yemen and was meant to strike the nearby Israeli city of Eilat. At least six people were injured. Later that same day, an additional projectile struck an uninhabited area in the Egyptian city of Nuweiba, located approximately 70 km (45 mi) south of Taba. No injuries or damage occurred.
Analyst Comment: The origin of the missile that struck Nuweiba is unclear; however, Israeli authorities claim that the distance of Nuweiba from the Gaza Strip likely places the missile outside the range of Hamas’s arsenal, making another strike from Yemen more likely.
