Israel fired by missiles from Egypt

The Islamic State affiliate in the Sinai Peninsula took responsibility on Tuesday night for firing two rockets into Israel a day earlier.

One of the photos shows an ISIS terrorist preparing to launch the rockets.

The rocket fire followed the group's claims that an alleged Israeli drone strike killed five of its militants in the jihadists' Egyptian holdout.

The rockets, which landed in an open territory in the Eshkol Regional Council on Monday morning, caused no damage or injuries. "Forces are searching the area".

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman on Monday dismissed the threat posed by the Islamic State terror organization's affiliate in the Sinai Peninsula.


Speaking to Army Radio he described the group as a bunch of "random [amateurs] who have made a decision to build themselves an army", adding that "if you are talking about Hamas and Hezbollah then [IS's Sinai force] is not even a terror group".

According to the report, the four were traveling in a vehicle in a Sinai village near rafah on the border with Gaza.

"We need to see everything in proportion", he added.

Lieberman did, however, seem to imply that Israel was behind Saturday's drone strike.

The incident is the second within the space of a month after four missiles were fired towards the Israeli Red Sea city of Eilat, suggesting an increase in tensions on Israel's southern border. Three of the rockets were intercepted by Israel's Iron Dome missile defense system, and the fourth landed in open water. According to the Guardian, Hamas accused Israel of killing two Palestinians in Egypt's Sinai region via an airstrike.
