Alert in Central Negev, Gaza environs for rockets from Sinai
A few minutes after 1600 local time Friday, sirens sounded a red alert for rockets in locations around the Gaza Strip and central Negev. It is initially estimated that the rocket fire came from Sinai across the Egyptian border – not the Gaza Strip. DEBKAfile: If this is confirmed, it would mean that the Islamic State is shooting rockets into Israel. Until now, the Islamists had only on several occasions fired rockets at Eilat, Israel’s southernmost town.
