ISIS releases ‘proof’ it fired rockets on Israel

Islamic State on Wednesday released images of the Katyusha rockets fired by its Egyptian affiliate, Sinai Province, after claiming responsibility the previous night for the projectiles, which struck southern Israel.

The images showed a terrorist preparing two rockets before launching them from the Sinai Peninsula on Monday morning. They hit open areas in the Eshkol region causing no injuries or damage.

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman, on Monday, called the jihadist group on Israel’s southern border “annoying” and “hindersome,” dismissing the threat it poses.

Speaking to Army Radio he described the group as a bunch of “random [amateurs] who have decided to build themselves an army,” adding, “if you are talking about Hamas and Hezbollah, [Islamic State’s Sinai force] is not even a terrorist group.”
