JNS.org – Israeli Brigadier General Royi Elcabets said that the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) may launch an attack on Islamic State terrorists in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula if it perceives a possible attack on Israeli targets.

The “threat of terror from Sinai” has grown in recent years, Elcabets said at a ceremony marking the end of his two years as commander of the military division controlling Israel’s border with the Sinai, AFPreported.

“It is our duty to preempt it and strike at it, if and when this happens,” he said.
