ISIS FIRE ROCKETS AT ISRAEL : Islamic State claim Egypt's Sinai
ISRAEL - Two rockets fired from Egypt's violence-plagued Sinai Peninsula exploded inside Israeli territory on Friday without causing casualties. " Two rockets fired from Sinai struck southern Israel, but without causing casualties or material damage ," the spokesman said, without elaborating. The Islamic State of Iraq & the Levant jihadist group's affiliate in Egypt, " Sinai Province ", said it had fired three Grad rockets at Israel. It said this was in retaliation for alleged Israeli support for Egypt's armed forces on Wednesday when the jihadists attacked army checkpoints in northern Sinai. Egypt is reeling from a string of deadly attacks by ISIS on its security forces in the Sinai. Jihadists led by Isil have killed scores of troops, challenging President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi's efforts to restore security & economic stability.

PROPHECY INSIGHTS - Last week ISIS launched a full-scale military offensive, starting with mortar fire & suicide bombings against five Egyptian military checkpoints in the Sinai Peninsula. In a fierce 10-hour battle for the town of Ramadi, at least 200 Egyptian soldiers, terrorists & civilians were killed. Egypt responded by deploying F-16 warplanes to bombard ISIS fighters. So ISIS has moved ominously close to Israel’s borders. Then two days later rockets were fired at Israel by ISIS. Though no one was hurt & there was no material damage how long will it be before Israel is itself at war with this group ? ISIS is unmerciful to fellow Muslims – what would they be like to Jews . . . ISIS was spawned out of the ruins of Iraq. Their main territory covers the same territory as the ancient ' Assyrians '. And they behave in the same way as well. In Psalm 83 we read of ' Assur ' helping Israel’s surrounding neighbours who want to destroy Israel. ' Assur ' is actually Assyria. ISIS may be the fulfilment of Assur in this context.
PSALM 83 v 4-8 - They have said, Come, & let us cut them off from being a nation ; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. For they have ' consulted together ' with one consent : they are ' confederate against thee ' . . . the Philistines ( Palestinians ) with the inhabitants of Tyre ( Lebanon ) ; Assur also is joined with them : they have holpen the children of Lot
