The IDF said security forces were sweeping the site of impact.
The attack came as Jews in Israel were preparing for the holiday of Passover, and shortly after the government decided to close its side of the Taba Border Crossing between Eilat and Egypt in light of concerns of terrorist attacks targeting tourists in the volatile Sinai region.
The Prime Minister’s Office announced the move in a statement that cited “the intensifying activities” of Islamic State-affiliated terrorists in the Sinai region in recent months.
