Islamic State Affiliate Claims Responsibility for Friday Rocket Strike on Southern Israel
The Islamic State’s so-called Sinai “province” has claimed responsibility for firing three rockets at Israel. The photos released by the Islamic State can be seen below. The rockets did no damage and caused no casualties, according to initial press accounts.
The rockets attacks came just days after the same Islamic State branch launched a massive operation targeting the Egyptian military and security forces in the northern Sinai. The Egyptian government says that 17 soldiers were killed in a series of coordinated attacks, which also left dozens of jihadists dead.
