EILAT, (PIC)– Five were killed and 25 injured in two attacks on Israeli buses carrying soldiers near the southern occupied city of Um al-Rashrash (Eilat) on Thursday, Hebrew media reported.

They said that the Egged buses were mainly carrying soldiers and were heading from Beer Sheba to Eilat when they came under fire but continued their ride until they reached an Israeli military barrier. Reports indicated that a projectile was fired at the second bus which caused the deaths.

Reuters said that the attack took place 30 kilometers north of Eilat.

A big number of Israeli occupation troops backed by army choppers rushed to the scene amid reports of a clash with the attackers.
