‘Video: Ansar Beit al-Maqdis targets Israel with 5 rockets,’ Al-Masry Al-Youm (Egypt), 12 July 2014

Egyptian terrorist organisation Ansar Beit al-Maqdis posted a video to YouTube in which it appears the group fires five rockets into Israeli territory from their border position in the Sinai peninsula. While the video cannot be independently verified, the group has claimed previous attacks in the past, and the latest claim comes as Israel continues its bombardment of the Gaza Strip (Operation Protective Edge). The current operation has led to over 120 deaths and retaliatory rocket fire from Hamas. Additionally, rockets were fired into northern Israeli on Friday morning from unidentified militants in southern Lebanon. The current violence is the worst since Operation Pillar of Defense in November 2012.

Video: Ansar Beit al-Maqdis targets Israel with 5 rockets

12 July 2014

Ansar Beit al-Maqdis broadcast video footage revealing that the group claims responsibility for the launch of five 107mm rockets fired from Sinai towards the Bnei-Netzarim settlement in Israel.

The video footage shows five rockets fixed on top of sandbags in the border region south of Rafah, which are then fired toward the border between Egyptian and Israeli territory. Meanwhile, one of the members supervising the firing of the rockets exclaims “Allahu Akbar” (God is Great), without showing his face. The group broadcast the footage on YouTube.
