Two rockets fired from ISIS in Sinai hit southern Israel

Two rockets launched from Sinai Peninsula exploded in southern Israel’s Eshkol Regional Council on Monday morning, the IDF reported.

No air raid sirens were activated in the area as the projectiles were headed toward open territory, a military source added. There were no reports of injury or damage in the rockets attack.

On Sunday, the ISIS terror group claimed that five terrorists of its Sinai Peninsula branch were killed in an Israeli drone attack Saturday night.

The attack took place near the Sinai border with the Gaza Strip, outside of the city of Rafah.

According to the Amaq news agency, the five terrorists eliminated in Saturday’s strike had been preparing to fire a rocket at Israel.

About two weeks ago ISIS shot four missiles from the Sinai Desert into the southern city of Eilat.

The IDF Southern Command said that of the four projectiles fired from Egypt, three were intercepted by the Iron Dome. The rocket that was not intercepted struck in open territory near the city.

No injuries or damage were reported in that attack. At least four people were treated for shock in Eilat’s Yoseftal hospital.
