Haaretz just reported that a rocket has been fired into southern Israel from Egypt’s Sinai. The rocket was fired right after Israel closed its borders with Egypt amid terror attacks in order not to allow its citizens to enter Egypt from the crossing.  However, Israeli citizens will be permitted to return to Israel via the Taba crossing.

The rocket hit a greenhouse in a southern Israeli community near the Egypt and Gaza borders. No injuries were reported in the rocket attack, but one person suffered from shock.


The Israeli Prime Minister officially announced that the closure of the borders comes in the light of “the intensifying activities” of the Islamic State (IS) in the Sinai region.

ISIS claimed responsibility for the two church bombings attacks in Egypt; which killed 43 and wounded more than a 100. They also claimed responsibility for the rocket fired at Israel. A statement published on the ISIS-affiliated Amaq news agency said that militants of the group fired a grad rocket at “settlements in the Jewish Eshkol region.”
