ISIS claims responsibility for rocket attack on Monday; Israel increases security, closes border crossing into Egypt. Just hours before Israelis begin celebrating Passover, ISIS fired a rocket from the Sinai Peninsula into southern Israel. The rocket landed in the Eshkol region in a greenhouse, a man suffering from shock from the incident. Israeli security forces are on high alert ahead of the holiday with increased

security in the West Bank and the closing of the Taba border crossing from Israel into Egypt. Shortly after the closing of the border Monday morning, ISIS fired a rocket into Israeli territory. The decision to close the border comes following the ISIS attack in Egypt on Palm Sunday as well as intelligence of possible Islamic State terrorism. Israel’s Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman ordered the closing of the border after consultation with Israel’s Minister of Intelligence Yisrael Katz. MORE
