Israel Attacked With Missiles From Sinai

February 20, 2017

< 1 min read

Two rockets fired from the Sinai Peninsula targeted southern Israel on Monday morning, landing in open fields, said the IDF. No one was injured and no damages were reported.

No air raid sirens were activated, as the IDF determined that the missiles would land in empty, open territory. They fell within the area of the Eshkol Regional Council, bordering the Gaza Strip and the Sinai.

No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack, though earlier in the month an ISIS affiliate group took credit for four rockets launched from the Sinai, a hotbed of terror insurgency, at the Israeli resort town of Eilat on the country’s southernmost tip. It seems likely the same group is behind Monday’s attack.

Three of the rockets were intercepted by Israel’s Iron Dome; the fourth fell into an open field. There were no Israeli casualties or damages.

Monday’s attack came a day after ISIS in Sinai accused the IDF of killing four of its militants in a drone strike.

According to ISIS’ media arm, an Israeli drone struck a car carrying four ISIS fighters in a village in Sinai near the Egypt-Israel border, leaving all of the men dead.

The IDF did not confirm or deny the report, following a policy of withholding comment on attacks which occur outside of Israel.
