Sinai-based terrorist group claims rocket fire at Eilat

Ansar Beit al-Maqdis, an extremist Salafist group that operates in the Gaza Strip and the Sinai Peninsula, has claimed responsibility for the rockets fired towards Eilat Monday night, Gaza sources posted Monday night in a message on social networks. The organization has previously claimed responsibility for firing rockets towards the city and is considered a central group that is acting in recent months against the Egyptian army.


"Our war against the enemy in Egypt will not dissuade us from the war against our nation's first enemy," the statement said. (Roi Kais)
