The Islamic State’s official media outlet claims that five of its members were killed in an Israeli military airstrike in Egypt’s Sinai peninsula on Saturday.
According to Amaq news agency, an official media arm of the terror group, an Israeli drone strike struck a car with five Islamic State members in a village in the northern Sinai near the Egypt-Israel border on Saturday.
The strike occurred near the village of Shabana, south of the town of Rafah, Amaq said. Israel has increased their activities against ISIS after the terror group claimed responsibility for a rocket attack on the Israeli city of Eilat in early February.
On Monday morning ISIS retaliated firing two more rockets at Israel from the Sinai. The projectiles hit an open area with no injuries reported.
Earlier today, projectiles launched from the Sinai Peninsula hit open an area in Eshkol Regional Council. No injuries reported.
