Israeli army: Sinai militant fire hits Israel, no one hurt

Two rockets fired from Egypt's Sinai Peninsula fell to earth in southern Israel, the Israeli military said Monday.

The rockets fired on Monday came a day after the Islamic State, or ISIS, claimed that an Israel Air Force unmanned aerial vehicle on Saturday struck and killed at least four of the group's members.

No air raid sirens were activated, as the IDF determined that the missiles would land in empty, open territory.

In a statement on social media, the group said it had fired two Katyusha rockets at "southern Palestine", according to the Walla news site. The village is located south of the town Rafah in northern Sinai, near the Egypt-Israel border.

"This morning projectiles launched from Sinai hit an open area in southern Israel".

Isis claimed responsibility for the Eilat attack. "The discourse of Israeli drones hovering over Sinai are part of IS propaganda aiming to allege that there is an absence of Egyptian sovereignty over the peninsula", he added. Lieberman said that while IS in Sinai, know as Wiyalet, is "annoying" and "hindersome", it does not possess the means to pose a serious threat to Israel's security like terror groups Hamas or Hezbollah. Jerusalem and Cairo have been closely cooperating in the Sinai Peninsula in the fight against ISIS militants since Egyptian President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi's rise to power.

Egypt has been battling the militants in the restive region, including the Sinai-based Egyptian affiliate of the Islamic State group.
