Blasts hit two Egyptian Red Sea towns, Israel points to ‘aerial threat’

Projectiles hit two Egyptian Red Sea towns on Friday, injuring six people and highlighting the risk of regional spillover from the Israel-Gaza conflict. Israel’s military attributed the attacks to an “aerial threat” in the Red Sea region, possibly referring to Yemen’s Iran-backed Houthi movement, known for using drones. The Egyptian army spokesperson confirmed that an “unidentified drone” crashed into a building near a hospital in Taba, while another projectile fell near an electricity plant in Nuweiba. No one has claimed responsibility for the attacks. Witnesses reported hearing explosions, seeing smoke, and observing Egyptian warplanes flying overhead in both towns. Egypt, bordering both Gaza and Israel, is exposed to the conflict and has been advocating for aid flows into Gaza, the release of hostages, and a ceasefire. In a televised briefing, Israel’s military spokesperson stated that Israel will collaborate with Egypt and the United States to strengthen regional defenses against threats from the Red Sea region. The U.S. Navy warship in the Red Sea intercepted projectiles launched by the Houthis, potentially aimed at Israel. Egypt has also experienced incidents related to the conflict, including Egyptian border guards being injured by fragments of an Israeli tank shell and a missile attack on the Israeli town of Eilat, adjacent to Taba.
