The Israeli military is concerned that the Islamic State group is planning a large-scale attack against Israel from Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, Germany’s Bild newspaper reported on Sunday, citing an IDF officer.
Sinai has become an Islamic State stronghold in recent years. According to the Bild report, there could be hundreds of Islamic State operatives currently training in Sinai and awaiting an order to strike Israel.
The IDF officer quoted in the article said that while it was not clear what form a future Islamic State attack against Israel would take, it could include the use of tanks and artillery by the terrorist group.
