Three rockets were fired from Egypt’s Sinai peninsula into southern Israel today.
The BBC reported:
A group affiliated with Islamic State has said it fired three rockets into Israel from Egypt’s Sinai peninsula.
The affiliate, which calls itself Sinai Province, said it had acted in retaliation for what it says is Israeli support for the Egyptian army.
Israel said two rockets landed in the south of the country, causing no casualties or material damage.
At least 17 Egyptian soldiers and 100 IS militants have died in fighting in northern Sinai since Wednesday.
The clashes were triggered by a co-ordinated mass assault of IS militants on the town of Sheikh Zuweid.
