“In the next six months they will try to carry out an attack and try to do something against Israel,” stated the officer.

Yehuda Hacohen, told The Jerusalem Post's sister publication Ma'ariv that ISIS knows the Egyptians have improved their strategy, and is convinced that there will come a day when ISIS will turn their focus towards Israel.
"They say to themselves: 'first we will finish the infidels, than we will take care of the dogs'...We are a notch below the infidels," Hacohen stated...
