In yesterday’s Daily Dispatch, we reported that rockets had been fired into southern Israel. Now, Israel Hayom reports that the projectiles were fired by Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists in Sinai, and that no injuries were reported:

Two rockets fired from the Sinai Peninsula hit southern Israel on Monday morning. The projectiles exploded in open areas in the Eshkol Regional Council, causing no harm.

According to the military, sirens in the area were not triggered as Israel’s air defenses recognized that the rockets did not pose a threat to the residents.

Sinai Province, Islamic State’s proxy in the desert peninsula, claimed responsibility for the attack…

Monday’s rocket fire followed reports by the Islamic State-affiliated Amaq news agency that four of the jihadi group’s operatives were killed on Saturday night in an Israeli drone strike in northern Sinai, near Egyptian Rafah.
