ISIS Responsible for Rockets and Controls Gaza Tunnels

In a message provided to the media, ISIS proudly claims responsibility for the rocket attacks on Israel from the Sinai Peninsula earlier this week.

“With the grace of God alone, a military squad fired several Grad rockets at encampments of Jewish usurpers in the city of Um al-Rashrash [Eilat] in order to teach the Jews and the crusaders that a proxy war will not avail them of anything.”

Thankfully, no one was injured in the rocket attacks, as three of the four were shot down by the Iron Dome and a fourth landed harmlessly in an open area.

Meanwhile, The Jewish Press reports that military tunnels in the Sinai between Egypt and Gaza are now controlled by ISIS.

In May 2016 it was discovered that ISIS had infiltrated the Gaza Strip via Hamas tunnels from the Sinai region in order to coordinate with senior Hamas officials.  It is believed that coordination between the two terrorist groups has continued (and likely increased) since then.

Evil continues to hover on Israel’s borders.  Be diligent to pray for the safety and protection of the Jewish people, and for wisdom of Israeli military leadership.
