near the resort town of Eilat.
The attacks hit a bus carrying off-duty soldiers back from their bases, a passenger car and a military patrol.
An Israeli military statement said a "large number" of assailants were working in multiple squads.
"Terrorists fired at a bus on its way to Eilat and fired an anti-tank rocket at another vehicle. At the same time, a military patrol hit an explosive device," it said.
A television station, Channel 10, later reported a fourth attack. There was no immediate confirmation from Israeli officials.
Reports from the first attack said a vehicle followed the bus, then two to three gunmen got out and opened fire with automatic weapons. The assailants fled with Israeli security forces in pursuit and a gun battle followed.
