ISIS Affiliate Claims It Fired 3 Rockets at Israel

An ISIS affiliate claimed responsibility for firing three rockets on southern Israel.

Sinai Province claimed responsibility for Friday’s attack from the Sinai Peninsula, saying it fired the long-range Grad missiles at “occupied Palestine.”

Israel Police found the remains of the rockets on Friday and Saturday in open areas. There were no injuries.

The attack caused Code Red sirens to sound throughout southern Israel, sending residents to shelters.

It came days after ISIS mounted coordinated attacks on Egyptian checkpoints that left dozens of Egyptian soldiers dead.
