ISIS claims Sinai rocket attack

Posted February 22, 2017

The Islamic State's local arm fired two rockets into Israel for the first time from northern Sinai.

"This morning projectiles launched from Sinai hit an open area in southern Israel". It comes a day after an Isis affiliate claimed that several of its members had been killed by an Israeli drone.

Earlier this month the group claimed responsibility for a rocket barrage fired from the Sinai towards Israel's Red Sea resort of city of Eilat. "Forces are searching the area".

The ISIS-affiliated Amaq news agency reported that that an Israel Air Force (IAF) drone fired at the terror cell as it was traveling in a vehicle. They were traveling in a auto in Sinai near Rafah, on the border with Gaza.
