Two rockets fired from Egypt's Sinai Peninsula fell to earth in southern Israel, the Israeli military said Monday.
No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack, though earlier in the month an ISIS affiliate group took credit for four rockets launched from the Sinai, a hotbed of terror insurgency, at the Israeli resort town of Eilat on the country's southernmost tip.
The missiles landed in an open area and did not result in any casualties, according to an army statement.
The launches are the first time since 2015 that rockets have been fired at Israel from Egypt.
The claims have not been confirmed by any Israeli or Egyptian authorities. "No injuries have been reported".

I think diversity does reflect the world we live in and should be as accessible to us in terms of what we have in entertainment. Those two scurry off to initiate a subplot while arrows fly, spears puncture, and red and green blood gushes.
Because the trajectory of the rockets was not headed towards a populated area, (1) the Red Alert incoming air raid siren did not activate, and (2) the Iron Dome anti-missile defense system did not engage to shoot them down from the sky.
The Eilat rocket strike was claimed by Sinai Province group the following day.
The rocket fire came after the Israeli Air Force fired a drone at a auto carrying four members of the death cult, killing them all near Rafah, near Gaza. It seems likely the same group is behind Monday's attack. The minister further noted that IS in Sinai does not represent a serious threat to Israel's security and that it only slightly disrupts it, asserting that it can not be compared to the threats posed by the Gaza-based movement of Hamas and the Lebanon-based Hezbollah.
Israel and Egypt signed a peace treaty in 1979 and maintain close security cooperation. Jerusalem and Cairo have been closely cooperating in the Sinai Peninsula in the fight against ISIS militants since Egyptian President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi's rise to power.
