Rockets fired into southern Israel from Egypt's Sinai

Two Rockets Fired From Sinai Hit Southern Israel

According to the Israeli military in a statement on Monday, two rockets fired from Egypt's Sinai region struck Israel's Eshkol region.

Both of the missiles landed in an open field, causing no physical injuries to anyone, and no property damage.

The website cited sources in the Israeli army as saying that the warning sirens did not go off in the area in which the rockets exploded.

Earlier this month, the ISIS affiliate Wilayat Sayna (formerly known as Ansar Beit al-Maqdis) claimed it was behind a salvo of rockets fired from the Sinai towards Israel's Red Sea resort of city of Eilat.

The IDF has not commented on the claim, but the Israel is reported to have carried out drone strikes "with Egypt's knowledge and blessing" against militants in the restive peninsula.

The rocket attack came a day after ISIS claimed that five members of its Sinai Peninsula branch were killed in an Israeli drone attack on Saturday night. They were traveling in a auto in Sinai near Rafah, on the border with Gaza.

A Palestinian from Gaza was reportedly among those killed in the strike.

The images show a militant linked to the ISIS affiliate in Egypt, known as the Sinai Province, as he prepares two rockets prior to launching them from the restive Sinai Peninsula. The Iron Dome missile system intercepted three projectiles while a fourth landed in open territory. It seems likely the same group is behind Monday's attack.

Israel and Egypt signed a peace treaty in 1979 and maintain close security cooperation. The minister further noted that IS in Sinai does not represent a serious threat to Israel's security and that it only slightly disrupts it, asserting that it can not be compared to the threats posed by the Gaza-based movement of Hamas and the Lebanon-based Hezbollah.
