ISIS-Sinai threatens to bomb Eilat port “in the coming days”

The Islamist Sinai Province, known as Ansar Bait al-Maqdis before joining ISIS, threatened Saturday to strike Eilat Port, in partnership with the ISIS wing in the Gaza Strip, according to Egyptian media. Abu Othman al-Mosley, a northern Sinai Islamist leader, called for the enlistment of new members from jihadist factions and the Muslim Brotherhood in other provinces of Egypt, in order to fight Egyptian security forces and also attack Hamas’s military arm, Ezz e-din Al-Qassam, and take control of the Gaza Strip.
