As Donald Trump’s visit to the Holy Land wound down today, terrorists in the Sinai Peninsula tried to make their voices heard. The Times of Israel’s Judah Ari Gross reports that a terrorist rocket launched from Egypt landed in the Eshkol Region of southern Israel:

A rocket was fired from Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula at southern Israel on Tuesday morning, amid a visit to the country by US President Donald Trump, the army said.

No injury or damage was caused by the missile, the army said.

Israeli troops launched a search for the impact site in the Eshkol region, which abuts the Sinai Peninsula. In some cases, rockets launched toward Israel do not cross the border and end up landing inside Egyptian territory.

No organization took immediate responsibility, but previous such incidents have been claimed by the Islamic State terror group’s Sinai affiliate.
