Islamic State Says Israeli Planes Attacked It in Sinai

YERUSHALAYIM -

An official spokesman for Islamic State accused Israel on Tuesday of launching three air attacks during the course of the day on the terrorist organization’s military infrastructure in the Sinai.

The Islamic State spokesman in Egypt claimed it was the third time this week Israel had sent warplanes against its positions in Sinai, which he said were assisted in finding their targets by the Egyptian military.

Sources in Sinai were quoted as saying that the IAF strikes had killed the Islamic State’s military liaison to Hamas in Gaza.

Israeli officials would neither confirm nor deny the Islamic State claims.

Islamic State terrorists said they had attempted to retaliate, but a rocket fired at Israel missed its target and landed in Egypt.
