ISIS releases 'proof' it fired rockets on Israel

Two rockets fired from the Sinai Peninsula targeted southern Israel on Monday morning, landing in open fields, said the IDF.

The rocket fire followed the group's claims that an alleged Israeli drone strike killed five of its militants in the jihadists' Egyptian holdout.

Tel Aviv- In a research conducted by Israeli military and intelligence officials and in the wake of repeated rocket attacks launched from Sinai towards Eilat and its vicinity, chances are that ISIS hardliners seek to drag Israel into another war against the Gaza Strip.

The February launches were the first time since 2015 that rockets had been fired at Israel from Egypt.

In a statement on social media, the group said it had fired two Katyusha rockets at "southern Palestine", according to the Walla news site.

Isis claimed responsibility for the Eilat attack. Lieberman said that while IS in Sinai, know as Wiyalet, is "annoying" and "hindersome", it does not possess the means to pose a serious threat to Israel's security like terror groups Hamas or Hezbollah.

The claims have not been confirmed by any Israeli or Egyptian authorities.

According to the report, the four were traveling in a vehicle in a Sinai village near rafah on the border with Gaza. Jerusalem and Cairo have been closely cooperating in the Sinai Peninsula in the fight against ISIS militants since Egyptian President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi's rise to power.

"If you are talking about Hamas and Hezbollah then [the Islamic State's Sinai affiliate] is not even a terror group", Lieberman told Army Radio, describing the group as "random [amateurs] who made a decision to build themselves an army".

Because the trajectory of the rockets was not headed towards a populated area, (1) the Red Alert incoming air raid siren did not activate, and (2) the Iron Dome anti-missile defense system did not engage to shoot them down from the sky.
