Rocket shot from Sinai toward Israel, no injuries

A rocket has been shot from Egypt’s Sinai peninsula toward Israel, a spokesperson for the Israel Defense Forces says.

It’s not clear if the rocket managed to cross the border into Israel, but the army says there are no reports of injuries or damage.

‘Forces are searching the area for signs of impact,” the IDF says in a statement.

Israeli forces had reportedly been on high alert that terror groups could try to disturb the visit of US President Donald Trump by shooting rockets from Gaza or Sinai.

There’s no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack.

No sirens sounded as the rocket’s trajectory did not place it as threatening any Israeli communities, according to an Israeli source.
